Rating and seal to indicate the safety of JM Family’s buildings for associates and visitors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic

In May of this year, JM Family Enterprises announced that it had earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating for seven buildings at its headquarters in Deerfield Beach. The company has now revealed that it has achieved the designation for buildings across all of its company-owned business locations. All 18 rated buildings will display a seal that is good for one year.

The WELL Health-Safety Rating, which was developed by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all building and facility types that focuses on operational policies, maintenance, stakeholder engagement and emergency plans to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and into the future. IWBI provides a framework for organizations that aim to advance health by setting performance standards for design, operational protocols, policies and a commitment to fostering a culture of health and wellness.

“Although providing a safe and healthy work environment has always been a priority, the past year and a half has solidified our commitment to this focus,” said Brent Burns, president and CEO, JM Family. “With this rating, we’re honored to now be getting credit for universal JM Family standards that are already in place across all locations.”

WELL Health-Safety Rating focus areas include: cleaning and sanitization, health service resources, emergency preparedness plans, air and water quality management, and stakeholder engagement and communication.

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.
