Well Building Institute Launches Ratings for Facilities Ops
The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) has launched the WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management, a third-party verified rating focusing on operational policies, cleaning protocols and design strategies to address a post-COVID-19 environment.
An advisory of industry leaders from sports and entertainment will advance the completion of the WELL Health-Safety Rating specific to these venues. The new WELL Health-Safety Rating also will apply to a range of other facility types and market sectors, including offices, hotels, retail, grocery stores, warehouses, manufacturing, theaters, recreation, restaurants and schools, among others.
“By collaborating with industry and subject-matter experts in public health, facility ownership, operations, management and policies, cleaning protocols, and building and spatial design, we are able to drive towards broader market transformation and completely rethink how owners and operators can adapt to be more resilient as we emerge from this global pandemic,” said Rick Fedrizzi, IWBI’s chairman & CEO.
