Embassy Group and flexible space provider WeWork India on October 6 received a global certification from The British Safety Council for Embassy TechVillage and WeWork India’s locations.
These certifications were granted for the best in class health and safety practices implemented in controlling the spread of COVID- 19, said a press release. The global certification by The British Safety Council recognises an organisation’s efforts in taking stringent risk-management and control measures to keep the environment safe and secure for all stakeholders, it added.
The certification for Embassy Group and WeWork India comes at a time when India is still grappling with an increasing number of COVID-19 cases and effective implementation of safety standards is paramount at workspaces.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive, British Safety Council commented “As lockdowns have eased and more and more people have started returning to work it is right that workers and employers want to have confidence that every possible step has been taken to keep workplaces safe. With the COVID-19 Assurance Assessment, WeWork India and Embassy TechVillage, which are part of the Embassy Group, have shown that their protocols and associated control arrangements were in accordance with current Government and sector specific guidelines at the time of the review and arrangements for continual monitoring of their effectiveness were in place.”
Karan Virwani, CEO, WeWork India said, “This certification from The British Safety Council is a testament to our efforts and we are proud to be recognised. WeWork has always been ahead of the game in terms of ushering in the future of work.”
