Course Info

By placing people at the heart of design, we actively contribute to the global movement of elevating health and well-being. This CE session is focused on the health, safety, and welfare of occupants of the built environment. It addresses the operational policies and management procedures (through WELL™ guidelines) to optimize environments for the holistic health of all occupants. The course is directed at understanding the drivers for the investment in well-being; recognizing the importance of a standard to guide healthy environments; how to include and evaluate operational policies and procedures for better health outcomes; and strategy implementation of the WELL Building Standards for the health, safety and welfare of occupants of built environments. This course explores the application of the WELL™ Health + Safety Rating and its value in aligning real estate, operations, human resources, and the C-suite under a shared vision for the health and well-being of employees. The presentation offers insight to the strategies and features used to rebuild security and confidence in the safety of the built environment through the exploration of this version of the WELL™ Building Standard.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand the value of the WELL Health + Safety Rating with consideration to the interrelated performance of buildings, humans, and business. Application of these proven operational policies and procedures optimize the built environment for occupants and demonstrates stakeholder’s commitment to health and well-being.
  • Compare the WELL Health + Safety Rating with WELL v2 and recognize how the Health + Safety Rating not only promotes confidence in the safety of the building, but also serves as a steppingstone to WELL v2 Certification. Rigorous research, testing, and feedback are at the center of both versions of the WELL Building Standard placing health and wellness at the center of design, construction, technology, and programming decisions.
  • Connect and apply health and safety-promoting strategies of WELL Building Standard to operational policies and procedures within the built environment. Explore and learn about best practices and the new research-based insights on low to no-cost investments that offer the greatest health benefits.
  • Review examples and the benefits of implementing the WELL Health + Safety Rating by qualifying how WELL combines best practices with evidence-based medical and scientific research-harnessing the built environment as a vehicle to support human health and safety well into the future.
