SAFEPARK Commission
SAFEPARK™ Blue-Ribbon Commission
Safety in a COVID-19 World is Vital for Back to Work & Back to Business


To safeguard parkers, employees and asset owners, the parking industry rallied a blue ribbon commission to establish North American guidelines for sanitization. The SAFEPARK™ guidelines for North American are a collaborative effort of The National Parking Association and Canadian Parking Association.
