Duke Energy Convention Center earns GBAC STAR™ Accreditation
Duke Energy Convention Center became the first Ohio facility to achieve Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR™ Accreditation Aug. 19, 2020.
Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the venue has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in its facility.
As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR™ helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s readiness for biorisk situations. The program verifies that Duke Energy Convention Center implements best practices to prepare for, respond to and recover from outbreaks and pandemics.
