The Global Hotel Security Standard was developed in response to the demand from the Travel Management Industry and hotel room buyers for a consistent, minimum, readily identifiable and measurable standard of safety and security in hotels.
The purpose of the standard is to make it easier to award and recognize hotels investing in, operating and maintaining a level of safety and security, which in turn is recognized by hotel guests, hotel room buyers, the Travel Management Industry, hotel owners and operators.
Origin of The Global Hotel Security Standard©
The Global Hotel Security Standard © was originated, developed and initiated by Safehotels Alliance AB in 2001. Safehotels Alliance reviewed the consistency and approach of internal hotel safety and security programs relating to: individual international hotel companies, major corporate company travel managers, airlines, tour operators, hotel industry experts in safety and security, travel industry organisations and associations.
Following the review, the most consistent and best practice standards in global hotel safety and security were identified – then produced as an overall Global Hotel Security Standard ©.
