How WELL Promotes Workplace Safety, Health, and Confidence from FacilitiesNet

The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) created the WELL Health-Safety Rating application and label for buildings.

The rating program focuses on 25 features for health and safety in buildings. Organizations can earn this designation by achieving compliance with 15 of the 25. This rating for buildings is flexible, scalable across varying building types, and easily applied across an extensive portfolio of properties.

The WELL Health-Safety areas of focus are:

  • Cleaning and Sanitation Procedures
  • Emergency Preparedness Programs
  • Health Service Resources
  • Air and Water Quality Management
  • Stakeholder Engagement and Communication

As our knowledge of SARS-CoV-2 and specifically COVID-19 evolves, so do the safety measures we can apply. The WELL Health-Safety Rating for facility operations provides tools and guidance for facility managers to capture how their onsite team prioritizes health and safety for people at their facilities.

Many facility teams have already implemented enhanced cleaning procedures, preventive measures such as signage and communication to ensure masks and distancing occur, plus outside air and extended run operating procedures and suite-cleaning options to limit spread. Check out the full article here.
