London: Intertek Cristal, a market leading global health, safety, quality and security risk management business focused on the travel, tourism and hospitality sectors, is pleased to announce their support for the Government of Cabo Verde in the implementation of standard operating procedures of hygiene practices for several regional medical facilities with POSI-Check.

As part of Intertek’s Protek Solutions for health, safety, and wellbeing, POSI-Check was established to support organisations in the coming weeks and months as the world looks to adapt to the ‘new normal’ in a COVID-19 world. The POSI-Check audit programme is designed to address the current and future need to formulate and monitor an effective response to communicable infections across the globe.

“We’re honoured to be working with the Government of Cabo Verde on their efforts to ensure the health and safety of their residents and visitors. With Intertek’s 120+ years of providing assurance to businesses and consumers alike, we continue our mission to making the world a better and safer place alongside groups such as the Government of Cabo Verde. POSI-Check was designed to support in COVID-19 pandemic recovery efforts while also providing assurance to the public moving forward. Part of the reassurance needed for travellers and residents alike, is the knowledge that medical assistance is available and facilities are actively taking steps to keep their patients safe” says Steve Tate, CEO, Intertek Cristal.
