Florim USA announced it has earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating through the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), and is the first porcelain tile manufacturer, and the largest size manufacturer at large in the world, to accomplish this goal.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an annual rating that empowers owners and operators across large and small businesses alike to take the necessary steps in order to prioritize the health and safety of their staff, visitors and stakeholders.
“The WELL Health-Safety Rating represents the company’s ongoing commitment to the well-being of our employees and customers," said Don Haynes, sustainability and environmental manager, Florim USA. “This intersects with Florim’s longstanding efforts and core values that places emphasis on health, safety and the environment.”
For achievement of the WELL Health-Safety Rating, Florim USA implemented a range of internal protocols and measures such as extra surface cleaning, masking policies at least in accordance with local requirements, remote work policies and a staged return to the office. Policies and procedures such as indoor air quality, employee benefits and natural disaster response rates were reviewed as part of achieving the rating.
Florim USA was awarded the WELL Health-Safety Rating following the successful completion of third-party documentation review by GBCI to confirm it has met the feature specific intents and requirements.
