Thousands of building owners are prioritizing the Health and Safety of their building’s occupants by earning the WELL Health-Safety Seal.

  • Are you prepared for a safe and secure return Back-to-Work?
  • Are you already Back-to-Work and wonder if you have done the best effort at keeping everyone safe and healthy?
  • Do you worry your company culture has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis?
  • Are you prepared for what could (will) be next?

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for organizations to have proactive strategies that deliver a healthy environment and help occupants and visitors feel safe and healthy. These goals can be difficult to achieve without clear guidance and direction.

The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an objective, third-party certification system backed by science, and verified by experts. It helps you reduce guesswork and validates the effectiveness of your practices and processes for occupant wellbeing. This presentation will provide insight into the policies and procedures outlined in the WELL Health-Safety Rating system and how they are focused on safeguarding employee and visitor wellbeing.

Attendees will:

  1. Understand how the WELL Health-Safety Rating guides decision making and policies to ensure their facilities are safe now and in the future.
  2. Recognize how they can safeguard employee and visitor wellbeing and build public trust in their organization using the policies and procedures outlined in the WELL Health-Safety Rating
  3. Realize how achieving the WELL Health-Safety Seal can improve productivity and support their company culture.
  4. Learn how attaining the WELL Health-Safety Seal will state they have made the health and safety of their building’s occupants a top priority.
