Milan Bergamo airport at the highest levels for Covid-19 protocols
Tüv Süd has renewed Hygiene Synopsis Certification for Sacbo for prevention of Covid-19 risk
SACBO, the company that manages Milan Bergamo Airport, has received recognition from Tüv Süd, one of the most prestigious certification bodies, with the renewal of Hygiene Synopsis certification for the full and correct application of methods to prevent the risk of Covid-19 in airport passenger areas and in the airport management offices.
The renewal of the certification, previously obtained in July 2020, granted on 23 June 2021, took place following strict controls of documentation and detailed inspections, and confirms the attention to preventative measures implemented since March 2020 to guarantee a focus on passenger safety involving all the staff at Bergamo airport.
The consolidated processes that have led to the granting of Hygiene Synopsis certification is based on the certified management systems ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), ISO 45001 (Health and safety in the workplace), and ISO 27001 (Information security), and sees Milano Bergamo Airport characterised by the utmost levels of respect for Covid-19 protocols in line with best practices in the major European airports.
This recognition has been granted to SACBO by Tüv Süd in the wake of assessments to verify the application of Italian and European Union regulations, and is the result of pragmatic experience and skills developed by the TÜV group with regards to complex systems.
The process has seen the involvement not only of company management but also of representatives for external stakeholders such as, for example, passenger and freight service suppliers, operators of commercial activities and all airport operators. The contribution of each and every one of these has allowed for the fostering of widespread awareness, leading to actions to contain the spread of Covid-19 to be considered as complementary and efficient.
Tüv concluded its assessment report with the following comment: “The organisation as a whole has demonstrated and continues to demonstrate an elevated level of development in the implementation of measures for the prevention and monitoring of risks connected to the SARS COV-2 pandemic, which have proved to be in line with measures issued in terms of efficiency, while respecting the most important criteria for efficiency of the infrastructure and of airport services”.
