ITIS, is one of the largest Shopping centers in Finland owned by Morgan Stanley now takes an extra step for the safety and security of their shopping center tenants, visitors and team members by being certified as a SAFE RetailDestination© by SAFE ShoppingCenters.
After a good effort and process of verifying our internal processes and procedures and making further improvements on the safety and security for the shopping center and with this certification, ITIS demonstrates that it offers a safe and secure shopping experience, both for tenants, visitors to the shopping center, and for the team members working at the asset.
“We decided to apply for this certification because Itis Shopping Centre has invested a great deal on safety matters and we wanted an independent safety, security assessment that goes further than the local requirements and an industry benchmark. A SAFE RetailDestination© designation is important for our retailers as well as for visitors and employees. Itis will continue to be an example for other Shopping Centres, as life safety is one of our key priorities, says Mrs Johanna Haltia, Head of Operations.
The certification process encouraged us to go that extra mile with improved standards, and it confirms that our team is well trained in our safety and security procedures” and with good resilience, says Mr Matias Lehtomäki, Security and cleaning manager.
Erik Engstrand, CEO of SAFE ShoppingCenters says; “For ITIS to achieve this first designation demonstrates the shopping center’s commitment to safety and security, which will further enhance their reputation. Being a responsible shopping centre operator will be recognised by retailers and reinforce confidence in ITIS’s excellent management.”
