‘We’re Good to Go – Liverpool Tour Operator, Fab 4 Taxi Tour becomes one of the first Tourism Companies in the UK to be accredited with new safety standard
Fab 4 Taxi Tours have become one of the first tourism operators in the UK to be accredited with a new safety standard as it plans for its re-opening in July.
‘We’re Good To Go’ has been unveiled as a nationwide industry standard and consumer mark to provide a ‘ring of confidence’ for domestic tourism as the sector works towards reopening in July.
The label will demonstrate that businesses are adhering to respective government and public health guidance, have carried out a Coviud-19 risk assessment and checked that they have the required processes in place.
The scheme has been developed by VisitEngland in partnership with Tourism Northern Ireland, VisitScotland and Visit Wales to ensure a standardised approach across the UK.
Input has come from more than 40 industry bodies including UKHospitality, the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions, the British Holiday & Home Parks Association, the British Beer and Pub Association and the National Caravan Council as well as destination management organisations across the country.
The self-assessment includes specific guidelines for sectors including accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants and pubs, business conference and events venues and tour and coach operators with signposting to further industry and trade association guidance as required.
Businesses must complete a self-assessment through an online platform including a check-list confirming they have put the necessary processes in place, before receiving certification and the ‘We’re Good To Go’ mark for display in their premises and online.
Firms across the UK are assessed according to their respective national guidance including the social distancing and cleanliness protocols that must be in place.
Fab 4 Taxi Tours Director, Alex Jacobs said:
“We are really proud to be one of the first tourism operators to have been accredited in the UK. The Directors and our fantastic team of taxi drivers have worked together to make sure that our safety procedures are robust enough to give our customers the confidence to book a tour with us. This kitemark is the reward for all the hard work that we have put in over the past few months to get our safety protocols in place.”
Marketing Liverpool’s Director Chris Brown said:
“The visitor economy has been one of the major success stories in the Liverpool City Region over the past decade or so. As we plan for its recovery, building consumer confidence will be of the utmost importance, so I’m glad that VisitEngland’s new nationwide industry standard will help with this. It is great to see Fab 4 Taxi Tours getting accredited right away and flying the flag for our destination.”
