NFL Stadium Scores GBAC STAR™ Accreditation

May 5, 2020 NFL Stadium Scores GBAC STAR™ Accreditation

The NFL’s Miami Dolphins announced the team’s home field, Hard Rock Stadium, has committed to achieving GBAC STAR™ accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a division of ISSA.

To earn GBAC STAR™ accreditation, the Miami Gardens, Florida, stadium will complete 20 program elements with specific performance and guidance criteria. The Dolphins will work to establish and maintain a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program for the 65,000-seat stadium, providing both employees and attendees with assurance proper protocols are in place.  Hard Rock Stadium will be the first public facility to receive GBAC STAR™ accreditation.

“When our fans, players and staff are able to return to Hard Rock Stadium, we want them to have peace of mind that we’re doing everything we can to create the safest and healthiest environment possible,” said Tom Garfinkel, vice chairman and CEO of the Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium. “We didn’t want to create our own standard, we wanted to be accountable to the most credible third-party standard that exists. Working with GBAC ensures compliance with critical guidelines for the highest standard of cleanliness and it is our hope that other venues will follow suit as we navigate through these unprecedented times.”
