Budweiser Events Center First Arena in Colorado to Achieve GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation

Loveland, CO – The Budweiser Events Center at The Ranch has announced that it has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. The award marks the Budweiser Events Center as the first arena or stadium in Colorado to achieve the GBAC StarFacility Accreditation.

“For us it was imperative to pro-actively plan our approach to re-opening,” says District General Manager for Spectra Venue Management Keller Taylor.  “Ensuring the safety of our guests and staff is paramount moving forward, which is why we made haste in achieving our GBAC Accreditation.”

As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR™ helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s readiness for biorisk situations. Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the Budweiser Events Center has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention.

“GBAC STAR accreditation empowers facility owners and managers to assure workers, customers and key stakeholders that they have proven systems in place to maintain clean and healthy environments,” said GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. “By taking this important step to pursue GBAC STAR the Budweiser Events Center has received third-party validation that it follows strict protocols for biorisk situations, thereby demonstrating its preparedness and commitment to operating safely.”  

To achieve GBAC STAR™ accreditation, The Budweiser Events Center was required to demonstrate compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.
