StaySafer is a comprehensive certification program exclusively designed by NSF International for the global hospitality sector, providing certification to protect the health and safety of hotel guests, the release reported.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 10 million overseas travelers contract illness from food and drinking water, noted the release.

According to the release, the two key features of the StaySafer program include: The NSF DrinkSafer protocol, based on NSF Standard 432, which helps ensure water and ice potability through review and inspection of hotel water systems and testing and evaluation for contamination of the water and ice; and the NSF DineSafer program, based on the U.S. FDA Food Code, which reduced the risk of foodborne illness outbreaks through training, inspection and monitoring on food safety and quality on-site.
