COVID-19: Safety Resources

Your roadmap to reopening

As part of our ongoing commitment to support the industry, we are delighted to have developed a roadmap to assist venues to reopen and operate safely, as well as provide crucial reassurance to help encourage future trade.  

Based on extensive national and international research, our vital advice considers the safety of both an operator’s staff and clients throughout the entire customer journey, and guides you through your risk assessment preparations.  

It is designed to help venues to consider the best course of action for your own operation. In some instances it details the minimum requirements, while in others it asks you to consider taking additional steps to ensure the sector plays its part in rebuilding confidence. 

We have also added enhanced AIM – the UK’s only national quality accreditation for venues. Our new brand AIM Secure features the vital infection prevention and control protocols.  

Over the coming weeks, all AIM accredited venues will need to meet the new criteria, to retain the quality standard, which will clearly demonstrate to buyers their commitment to offering a first-class service safely and responsibly for the health of staff and customers. More information will follow.
