The WELL Health-Safety Rating represents a pivotal milestone for organizations striving to establish secure and resilient spaces for their occupants. Crafted by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), this rating serves as an all-encompassing guide for organizations to formulate comprehensive plans and protocols for health and safety, instilling confidence in stakeholders.
At its core, the WELL Health-Safety Rating places emphasis on five key action areas:
- Cleaning and Sanitization Procedures
- Emergency Preparedness Programs
- Health Service Resources
- Air and Water Quality Management
- Stakeholder Engagement and Communication
To achieve this prestigious rating, projects must attain a minimum of 15 points across various themes within these action areas. Moreover, projects can earn up to five innovation points by collaborating with a WELL AP or integrating design-based features that cater to their distinctive health and safety needs.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating goes beyond mere initial acknowledgment, including an annual renewal process to ensure consistent maintenance of high health and safety standards, culminating in an updated WELL Health-Safety seal.
The creation of this rating was motivated by the pressing need to address health and safety risks, particularly in indoor environments where individuals spend the majority of their time. It equips organizations with immediate strategies to address a spectrum of health and safety challenges, extending beyond the context of COVID-19 to future concerns like seasonal illnesses, wildfires, or acts of terrorism.
