Melbourne, Victoria – 17 December 2020 – Park Hyatt Melbourne has announced that it has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, Park Hyatt Melbourne has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in its facilities.
As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR™ helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s readiness for biorisk situations. The program verifies that Park Hyatt Melbourne implements best practices to prepare for, respond to and recover from outbreaks and pandemics.
“GBAC STAR accreditation empowers facility owners and managers to assure workers, customers and key stakeholders that they have proven systems in place to maintain clean and healthy environments,” said GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. “By taking this important step to pursue GBAC STAR, Park Hyatt Melbourne has received third-party validation that it follows strict protocols for biorisk situations, thereby demonstrating its preparedness and commitment to operating safely.”
To achieve GBAC STAR™ accreditation, Park Hyatt Melbourne was required to demonstrate compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.

A permanent guest has taken up residency at Park Hyatt Melbourne this year. Mr. Walker, a gorgeous 18 month-old Blonde Labrador, has moved into the hotel’s serene property situated at the fringe of Melbourne CBD, and has accepted the position as Park Hyatt Melbourne’s first canine ambassador.
Trained by Guide Dogs Victoria, daily activities for Mr. Walker will include using his notable people skills to bring a new level of comfort at Park Hyatt Melbourne, where he will be able to greet guests with a warm, furry welcome.
Guests will also be able to take their morning walks with Mr Walker or visit him at the hotel lobby, where he will be lounging on his custom-made Tasmanian Oak bed, and share their own photos of Walker by using #BarkHyattMelbourne.
