This ad informs you the WELL Health-Safety Seal is an endorsement which comes after businesses meets criteria in areas like sanitization, cleaning and preparedness.
However, the seal appears meaningless and a way to make money. You may have to pay over $12,000 that is a lot of money.
But a few seconds on the company’s website and you start to get a clearer picture.
It seems there is no performance testing with ‘Health seal’ and everything is documentation based.
And the worst part is… they get extorted for a rating that is all document based. No performance testing. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/5ssSnsKqrP— Chuck Anderson (@anderchuckinc) April 1, 2021
