Carrier launches Healthy Buildings Webinar Series
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida, 20 July 2020: As building owners and managers around the world work to safely reopen schools, businesses, restaurants, retail spaces and more, Carrier has teamed up with Dr Joseph Allen, Director, Healthy Buildings Program, Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health and Carrier’s scientific advisor, to launch a healthy buildings webinar series, titled ‘A Healthier Future Starts Indoors’, the company said through a Press release.
The educational series kicks off this week, beginning with a foundational session on the importance of healthy indoor environments, followed by sessions dedicated to specific verticals with actionable recommendations to help ensure a safe reopening, the company said.
“COVID-19 has elevated the recognition of the importance of indoor environments on our health,” Dr Allen said. “As businesses, schools and healthcare institutions work to reopen and stay open, with occupant health and safety top of mind, healthy buildings are the new minimum. But, healthy buildings are not just a short-term need. Buildings are a tool for long-term health promotion, and improvements now will prepare us to manage through COVID and beyond.”
The webinar series begins on July 21, followed by specialized sessions focused on K-12, Higher Education, Commercial Buildings, Hospitality, Healthcare, Retail and Marine.
“Customers all over the world are turning to Carrier solutions to operate their HVAC, fire and security systems optimally for a healthier and safer environment,” said Rajan Goel, Senior Vice President and leader of Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program, as the head of Carrier’s Building Solutions Group. “From retrofits and system upgrades to enhanced operations and analytics services, Carrier has the expertise to evaluate each building’s requirements and make recommendations for a healthier, safer future.”
