As it appears in the article dedicated to HOVIMA Hotels, in the UK on line web page of Travel Daily News.com:
"HOVIMA Aparthotels has been awarded Check Safety First’s prestigious ‘2010 Group Award’ for achieving exemplary health and safety levels across all its establishments last year. Using Check Safety First’s E-Cristal auditing system, the Tenerife based group has been commended for its excellent standard shown in the management of hygienic sanitary risks.
The HOVIMA group has worked tirelessly with Check Safety First to ensure the safest environment for guests. E-Cristal has been used by each establishment to gather and record the latest hygiene data relating to legionella, food safety and fire safety. Collecting this information has helped HOVIMA’s management maintain consistently high standards across the chain, which is upheld by independent audits undertaken on a monthly basis.
“Since working with Check Safety First in 2007, we have raised standards in each HOVIMA establishment. This award is an indication of all the hard work the team has put in over the past year to ensure that guest safety is our highest priority. We are extremely proud to be given such an accolade,” explains Candelaria Perdigon, quality manager at HOVIMA Aparthotels.
Steve Tate, chairman at Check Safety First explains, “Every year, we are delighted to single out one group that has consistently achieved outstanding levels of health and safety. We have been extremely impressed with HOVIMA’s hard work to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for guests across all of its establishments.”
As part of HOVIMA’s consistent commitment to health and safety standards, all of its aparthotels have been listed on checksafetyfirst.com. This is the only website to provide the travelling public with access to a database of hotels that have obtained consistently high standards of hygiene & safety."
