Real Risks, Real Consequences
There is no other sector of the built environment in which improper product installation is more detrimental than healthcare facilities. With flooring, low-quality craftsmanship doesn’t just create bad aesthetics. It leads to errors that compromise the sterility of the healthcare space, threaten the health and safety of occupants and require significant costs to rectify.
Inadequate moisture mitigation is a threat to flooring installations and can cause safety hazards. Blown out seams and corners create reservoirs for pathogens that cause deadly healthcare acquired infections (HAIs). Consider:
Healthcare Certifications & COVID-19 Training
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken an enormous toll on North America, and as we still grapple with its impact, the architecture and design community is rising to meet new demands of healthcare facilities.
During this time, the proper training to protect patients and staff in occupied healthcare environments during construction has become even more critical. Certified installers can save countless lives and help mitigate billions of dollars in added costs to our healthcare system.
