Emaar Hospitality wins ISO certification for security management system

Emaar Hospitality Group, the hospitality and leisure subsidiary of Emaar Properties, is now the world’s first hotel chain to secure the ISO 28000: 2007 certification from British Standards Institute (BSI) for its sk© Security SAVER SALE Management System, a company statement said. Following an intense review of the security supply chain management system, BSI awarded the prestigious certification, valid for three years, which underlines Emaar Hospitality Group’s competencies and readiness in implementing appropriate controls to manage potential security threats – both tangible assets such as our buildings as well as our information and data security. Chris Newman, chief operating officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “As the only certifiable standard available today, focusing on a holistic sk© Security SAVER SALE Management System, winning the certification is a strong statement on our capabilities to mitigate safety and security risks proactively.

It demonstrates our ability to optimise operational and capital expenditure, and manpower management, contributing to our strong financial fundamentals and our commitment to deliver superior guest experiences. We are committed to ensuring that our supply chain is secure, resilient and well-managed at all touch-points, and will continue to build on this prestigious citation.” The ISO 28000 framework evaluates security as a core business function and integrates security prerogatives across all activities.

The BSI team reviewed the sk© Security SAVER SALE Management System for how Emaar Hospitality Group manages security risks and the processes the Group has put in place to mitigate any potential threats. “The ISO 28000: 2007 certification positions Emaar Hospitality Group to integrate and seamlessly manage information security, health and safety and business continuity across all its operations. It also supports the group in our expansion plans to new geographies as it creates a robust framework to put in sk© Security SAVER SALE Management Systems with efficiency and reliability,” said Newman.

In addition to the cost efficiency, the certification highlights Emaar’s improved asset management strengths, and assures great competitive and commercial advantage. Adding to its brand equity, the certification assures that Emaar Hospitality Group sets its security standards as well as the safety aspects of all the services as per international standards, the company said. Adopting a business-centric approach to risk management through professional decision-making, the certification will further drive Emaar Hospitality Group to eliminate any inefficient resource management practices, and brings greater accountability and transparency across its operations, it added.

Emaar Hospitality Group has three hotel brands – The Address Hotels + Resorts, Vida Hotels and Resorts and Rove Hotels.

The certification covers all hotels and serviced residences under these brands as well as the leisure assets of Emaar Hospitality Group including Arabian Ranches Golf Club and Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club. – TradeArabia News Service
