Saba signs up to Failte Ireland’s “Covid-19 Safety Charter’

Posted on: August 18 2020


We are delighted to announce that both Saba Restaurants have signed up to ‘The Covid-19 Safety Charter’ from Failte Ireland. As well as screens, temperature checks, masks and our internal policies and procedures, the Charter gives our customers and staff further peace of mind that your health and safety is our top priority. So book your table today and relax and enjoy your Saba experience when you next dine in one of our restaurants.

What is the COVID-19 Safety Charter?
The COVID-19 Safety Charter is a Government-endorsed initiative to reinforce confidence in domestic and overseas visitors in tourism businesses. The COVID-19 Safety Charter is designed to give comfort and reassurance to employers, employees and customers that your business is ready to re-open safely.
By voluntarily signing up to the Charter, we have agreed to follow the ‘Guidelines for Re-opening’ issued for tourism businesses. We have also proved that our COVID-19 Lead Worker Representative has completed the Failte Ireland Infection Prevention Control for Tourism Business course and that all our staff have received all necessary training requirements.

It shows customers that all our staff have a clear understanding of Covid-19 and the standard precautions of infection control, that all staff are aware of their roles and responsibilities in preventing the spread of Covid-19 and that they consistently demonstrate good handwashing techniques and practices.
