Rating and seal to indicate the safety of JM Family’s buildings for associates and visitors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic
JM Family Enterprises has earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating for seven buildings at its headquarters in Deerfield Beach through the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI)
Deerfield Beach, Fla., May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JM Family Enterprises has earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating for seven buildings at its headquarters in Deerfield Beach through the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing buildings and space types focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, stakeholder engagement and emergency plans to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and into the future.
"The health, safety and well-being of our associates has always been of utmost importance at JM Family, and that focus has only been elevated during the last year,” said Brent Burns, president and CEO, JM Family.
While the distinction currently applies to buildings at the company’s main campus in Deerfield Beach, the policies and procedures leveraged for this certification — sick leave policies, health benefits, cleaning and sanitization procedures, and emergency preparedness programs — are already in existence and can be found across all operating locations. In the coming months, the company will be working toward achieving the WELL Health-Safety Rating for its other JM Family-owned facilities.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating provides a centralized source and governing body to validate efforts made by owners and operators. It leverages insights drawn from the IWBI Task Force on COVID-19, the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), global disease control and prevention centers and emergency management agencies, as well as recognized standard-making associations such as ASTM International and ASHRAE, and leading academic and research institutions.
“We hope the WELL rating and the seal on our doors serves as a visible indication of confidence and trust, communicating to all associates and visitors that their safety is our highest priority,” said Burns.
