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.

Fáilte Ireland has issued sector specific guidelines for tourism and hospitality businesses to guide you in how best to meet the Government’s public health advice; by signing up to this Charter, you and all your employees are agreeing to follow the recommended guidelines for your sector.

To be eligible to sign up to the COVID-19 Safety Charter, you must agree to the Terms and Conditions of the Charter, to adhere to the official guidelines for re-opening relevant to your sector and to ensure that all your employees undertake requisite COVID-19 safety & hygiene control training. Tourism and hospitality sectors eligible for the COVID-19 Safety Charter include sectors that received a set of Guidelines for Re-opening.
To view these sectors, and the appropriate guidelines, visit our Business Re-opening Supports section.

Each business applying for the COVID-19 Safety Charter will be asked to select a COVID-19 Lead Worker Representative (COVID-19 co-ordinator/lead). Your COVID-19 co-ordinator/lead will be required to complete the Fáilte Ireland Covid-19 Safety & Hygiene Control Training.

Every employee in your business should also have completed appropriate COVID-19 hygiene and safety control training as set out in the Terms & Conditions of the Charter. If your employees have not completed such training they will be required to complete the Fáilte Ireland COVID-19 Fáilte Ireland Infection Prevention Control for Tourism Businesses Course.

Once your business is approved by Fáilte Ireland as eligible for the COVID-19 Safety Charter you will be free to display this status throughout your business premises and online platforms. The Safety Charter demonstrates to your customers and employees that you, as a tourism and hospitality business, are operating in line with current Government public health advice and with safety and cleaning protocols in place.
