Global Programs

All Safe Certified

High standards of hygiene and cleanliness are already delivered across all our brands, all over the world. However the COVID-19 pandemic demands that we elevate those standards even further; therefore, we have launched the ALLSAFE label, which represents some of the most stringent cleaning standards & operational procedures in the hospitality industry.

Accor’s global cleanliness & prevention standards have been developed with and vetted by Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspections and certification. The ALLSAFE label communicates to guests when these standards have been met in our hotels. All Accor hotels must apply the global and regional standards and be audited either by the Group’s operational experts or third-party auditors to achieve the new ALLSAFE label.

AXA
To further strengthen our hotels’ commitment to the care of all who visit, Accor has announced a groundbreaking strategic partnership with AXA, a global insurance and assistance leader. Offering medical assistance to the clients of 5,000 Accor hotels around the world, guests will benefit from AXA’s latest telemedicine innovations and free access to medical teleconsultations. Customers will also have access to AXA’s extensive medical networks, which bring together tens of thousands of licensed healthcare professionals. Rollout is expected as soon as July 2020.

Guest Journey

At each touchpoint along the guest journey through an Accor property, extensive measures are being taken to protect our guests and employees, and aid in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

All protocols have been developed following the guidance of the WHO, CDC & PHAC, AHLA & USTA, and local health and government authorities, and have been validated by our expert advisory partners for maximum efficacy. Enhanced hands-on training, dedicated on-property rollout committees and a formal audit program ensure initial and continued compliance at all hotels across North & Central America.
