Audit at the Beach?

If you’ve been contemplating a job change, maybe a life of training, consulting, and auditing at your favorite beach would be of interest. See the description below extracted from the ISO.org web site.

Whether it is the soft white sand, or the call of the sea, beaches have an amazing ability to attract people from far and wide. Now they are even easier to keep beautiful with the publication of the first International Standard for beaches.

Beaches are not just for sun-seeking tourists. Beaches are important to our ecology, and keeping them clean, safe, and sustainable is as essential for people as it is for our planet. The new standard ISO 13009, “Tourism and related services — Requirements and recommendations for beach operation”, provides guidelines for operators to make better decisions about managing their beaches.

In addition to general beach management, ISO 13009 includes everything from beach and water safety, to cleaning, infrastructure, waste disposal, planning, and promotion.

The standard is a useful tool to assist travel agents, hotel owners, property developers, and local governments better manage their beaches. In addition, compliance with ISO 13009:2015 is also a valuable marketing tool to attract public funding for further improvements, as well as, investors and visitors that will aid commercial services in the area.

It also helps to ensure that entertainment activities in the area are conducted within a socially responsible framework, and provides guidance on safety and hygiene for visitors.
