After training and completing a disaster preparedness audit, Grand Nikko Bali proudly passed the necessary requirements to be rewarded with a Gold Certificate from the provincial Disaster Mitigation Board on Tuesday, July 28, 2015.
The certificate was officially presented to the resort’s Chief of Engineering, Wayan Sudiarsa, who also acts as Chairman of the Emergency Measures Committee. Grand Nikko Bali was one of only five hotels deemed eligible to receive this certification in lieu of being fully prepared for the event of a natural disaster.
The resort previously completed its disaster risk assessment on January 15th, 2015 followed by a detailed audit conducted by a panel of experts on April 30th, 2015. The whole process provided the essential guidance required to help Grand Nikko Bali further develop and implement its own internal policies for disaster risk reduction.
“We are extremely proud of this achievement and look forward to continuing to optimize the resort’s internal resources to participate optimally on both a departmental and individual level. This certification is not only a parameter of our preparedness, but also proof of our commitment to support Bali’s vision to be a disaster-ready province,” said Wayan Sudiarsa upon receiving the certificate.
This achievement is inseparable from the collaborative partnership between the resort and government, NGOs, and CSOs at district and provincial level during the socialization, training and assessment. The resort took the initiative to adhere to all the technical guidelines of disaster management set by the local authorities and was consequently rewarded.
With this certification, Grand Nikko Bali is expected to maintain the preparedness parameters that have been established and ensure the safety of its guests at all times. Prospective customers now have greater peace of mind in knowing that resort has a high-quality disaster preparedness management system in place.
