Kleine Constantia says Hello Hygiene!
Kleine Constantia Guest House has been certified as sparkling clean! The Hello Hygiene! certification is presented to hotels around the world that have passed audits proving their compliance with international hygiene standards. Kleine Constantia has been audited by DQS to ensure they meet the stringent international hygiene protocols.
In an era where hygiene protocols are under strict review, it is pivotal that hotels can prove their compliance with international regulations. This five-star boutique guesthouse is located in Johannesburg, South Africa and is the first establishment in Africa to have received the Hello Hygiene! certification. Being the first on the continent to obtain an internationally recognised accreditation for hygiene during a global pandemic is a mammoth achievement!
On the heels of this Global Conformity Certification, guests have the assurance that they are walking into an establishment that prides itself in cleanliness. Patrons can rest assured that their health and safety is a priority and that hygiene protocols are in line with global best practices. Marisa Strobos, the owner of Kleine Constantia, acknowledges that while they are thrilled to have been awarded the certification, it is the hard-working staff that keep the establishment in pristine conditions.
Standards build customer confidence. For the hotel industry, everything changed with the Covid-19 pandemic. Hygiene and safety are a primary concern for guests and staff, but no matter how air-tight your procedures are, communication is the key to demonstrating transparency and gaining trust. In achieving the Hello Hygiene! Certificate, Klein Constantia is confirming their compliance and care for guest safety. The shape of the tourism industry is changing and saying Hello Hygiene! is the way to earn trust.
DQS is proud to have played a pivotal role in assessing and auditing Kleine Constantia for the Hello Hygiene! certification. We specialise in health and safety regulations and were delighted to work with Kleine Constantia and have them be the first in Africa to have received this award and certification. With the honour of awarding Klein Constantia with the Hello Hygiene! certification, came the great responsibility of ensuring all outlined Global Certification of Compliance regulations were met.
