The SAFE + SOUND program has been developed by a team of hospitality and gaming experts in collaboration with worldwide health and sanitation specialists, such as Ecolab and NSF International. It also includes directives of key agencies, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). SAFE + SOUND is focused on enhanced cleaning practices, social interactions and workplace protocols, while ensuring transparency through the Guest and Team Member journey.
As part of the program, every Hard Rock Hotel & Casino around the world is required to pass the Safe + Sound 262 point inspection independently assessed by NSF International. We look forward once more to welcoming through our doors the millions of Hard Rock fans around the world, in the safest environment.
