Bartlett Reserve, a renowned provider of independent living services in Durham, North Carolina, is proud to announce that it has achieved the WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management. This esteemed recognition underscores Bartlett Reserve’s unwavering commitment to ensuring the health and safety of its residents, staff, and the broader community, especially in a post-COVID-19 environment. 

The WELL Health-Safety Rating is a crucial milestone for organizations seeking to create a safe and resilient space for their occupants. Developed by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), this rating serves as a comprehensive roadmap to help organizations establish plans and protocols for health and safety, instilling confidence in all stakeholders. 

At its core, the WELL Health-Safety Rating emphasizes five key action areas: 

  • Cleaning and Sanitization Procedures 
  • Emergency Preparedness Programs 
  • Health Service Resources 
  • Air and Water Quality Management 
  • Stakeholder Engagement and Communication 

To earn this prestigious rating, projects must achieve at least 15 points across multiple themes within these action areas. Additionally, projects can earn up to five innovation points by collaborating with a WELL AP or implementing design-based features that address their unique health and safety needs. 

The WELL Health-Safety Rating doesn’t stop at initial recognition. It includes an annual renewal process to ensure that organizations consistently maintain high health and safety standards, resulting in an updated WELL Health-Safety seal. 

This rating’s development was inspired by the urgent need to address health and safety risks, particularly in indoor environments where people spend most of their time. It provides organizations with immediate strategies to respond to various health and safety challenges, not limited to COVID-19 but also addressing future concerns such as seasonal illnesses, wildfires, or acts of terrorism. 

By achieving the WELL Health-Safety Rating, Bartlett Reserve demonstrates its dedication to creating a healthy and safe living environment. This recognition serves as another compelling reason for individuals seeking independent living in Durham, North Carolina, to choose Bartlett Reserve as their preferred destination.
