Bristol karting venue receives consumer safety standard

Absolutely Karting in Bristol has been awarded the Visit Britain ‘We’re Good to Go’ hospitality and tourism standard, which gives reassurance to customers that the venue adheres to the Government and public health Covid-19 guidance.

To receive the standard, Absolutely Karting had to show it is minimising risk by implementing clear safety processes to maintain cleanliness and aid social-distancing, as well as ensuring all members of its team are briefed on policies and procedures.

At the indoor karting venue these procedures include following a one-way system, wearing a face covering in the centre and making regular use of the hand-sanitising stations. The team has also increased the frequency of cleaning and all suits and helmets are UV sanitised between use.

Naomi Smith, Centre Manager at Absolutely Karting, commented:

“Since reopening in August, it’s been wonderful to welcome customers through the door again and to see people enjoy karting. We’ve worked extremely hard to ensure we are a safe environment for all visitors and the ‘We’re Good to Go’ standard is recognition of that.

“As part of the standard we will receive spot checks, so we are continually reviewing our procedures to see if there is even more we can do. As such, we’ve recently introduced ‘Social Bubble’ parties which give up to six people exclusive use of the track so they don’t have to mix with those outside of their social group.”
