Health + Wellness Protocols 4: Interiors, Products

Emerging research reveals an alarming trend: people’s health and sense of well-being are in decline throughout the world. This global issue poses a significant risk for employers: poor health and well-being among workers reduces performance and productivity. For employers that provide healthcare benefits, it also contributes to escalating cost burdens.

Nearly 70 percent of health care costs are due to preventable conditions, and new research confirms that spending long hours sitting down while commuting and working can play a significant role in the development of chronic disease. More than ever, worker well-being is a good business for designers.

In this fourth Health + Wellness Protocols module, we will explore products that enhance the health of a space, including furnishings, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, appliances and cleaning products.

Learning Objectives

  1. Recognize how furnishings can support human health and wellness through active design, ergonomic and stress reducing strategies.
  2. Identify ways to use and optimize lighting products to promote comfortable work environments.
  3. Discover how to select plumbing fixtures and appliances for their sustainable, assistive and inclusive features.
  4. Communicate strategies to implement comprehensive cleaning protocols and use cleaning products to support clean, healthy interiors.
