Arena Joins Other Facilities Emphasizing Public Health Through GBAC STAR Facility Reaccreditations

GBAC Star Arena, located in Los Angeles, CA, recently completed the reaccreditation process for GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a Division of ISSA.

The 20,000-seat sports arena — formerly known as Staples Center and home of the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks, the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, and the location of many renowned award shows and events — joined more than 150 facilities across the globe in renewing their GBAC STAR Facility Accreditation during the first three months of 2024.

“The accreditation demonstrates a facility’s commitment to establishing and sustaining a high-performance cleaning and disinfection program to maintain a hygienic indoor environment supported by knowledgeable professionals trained to uphold the highest standards of building maintenance,” according to a press release. “In addition, GBAC STAR Accreditation aligns a facility’s rigorous infectious disease prevention protocols with the latest sustainability initiatives, ensuring a resilient, sustainable operation.”

“Facilities of all types and sizes are renewing their GBAC STAR accreditation because it assures visitors and employees that these environments are clean and healthy,” GBAC Senior Director Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner said. “With GBAC STAR, you are not only demonstrating your commitment to protecting your employees’ and customers’ health and well-being in a safe, responsible, and sustainable way, but also shaping a healthier and safer world for everyone, everywhere.”
