A global inspection, verification, testing, and certification company has confirmed that Radisson RED V&A Waterfront, Cape Town has again retained its safety and security certification.

This, says the hotel’s curator Leonie Andereya, is a sign of their ongoing commitment to ensure the security and comfort of all guests and any staff member and service provider on the premises.

The certification was carried out by SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company. SGS is recognised as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. With more than 89,000 employees, SGS operates a network of over 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world.

“Our passion is to provide guests with an experience that they remember for all the right reasons. We understand all too well that they have a wide range of choices and that travellers have become more discerning over the choices they make.

“As a hotel, we must put safety, service, sustainability, and security excellence at the heart of everything we do and the SGS certification shows we have succeeded again. We realise also that this is an ongoing journey, and we need to keep working hard to retain this accolade,” says Ms Andereya.

Radisson RED Cape Town has been SGS certified since its opening in 2017 and the latest certification was confirmed in March. The criterion for the certification consists of more than 220 elements, which are organised within six sections: a hotel property’s safety and security walkthrough; process, training, and organisation; security equipment; fire equipment; fire training; and crisis management. 

“Being SGS certified shows guests, staff, and partners that Radisson RED V&A Waterfront takes the necessary precautions and measures to ensure their health and safety. Hotel guests should see the certification as another reason to stay, experience, and conference with us.”
