Fitness Centers and Distribution Locations Strengthen Commitment to Cleanliness with GBAC STAR™ Accreditation

February 12, 2021 Fitness Centers and Distribution Locations Strengthen Commitment to Cleanliness with GBAC STAR™ Accreditation

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, today announced that nearly 350 additional facilities, including 170 Planet Fitness locations owned and operated by United PF, the largest Planet Fitness franchise group, and more than 120 U.S. Electrical Services Inc. distribution locations have completed the GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation Program. This week’s newly accredited facilities also include Destin Fort Walton Beach Airport in Elgin, Fla.; George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston; College Park Center in Arlington, Texas; and hotels around the world.

“Accreditation sets facilities apart by equipping organizations with the correct work practices, procedures, and systems,” said GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. “As more facilities reopen and increase their occupancy limits, it will be important for them to follow infection prevention best practices. GBAC STAR enables them to successfully uphold cleanliness and safety.”
