Health, Wellness and Productivity: Privacy in Connected Healthy Buildings
To operate a healthy and safe building during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, building owners and tenants need to evaluate behavioral, spatial, material, and operational strategies to protect the health, welfare and privacy of building occupants. Technology, automation, and innovation play a pivotal role in workplace reentry programs and a myriad of solutions focused on making buildings “COVID-safe” have quickly entered the market. This series introduces both near as well as long-term sustainable strategies and technologies that facilitate re-occupancy of healthy and safe workplaces.
The introduction of new healthy building systems including sensors, cameras, location services, contact tracing and biometric controls bear the potential for hyper-surveillance in buildings. This session introduces best practices for creating privacy policies for the built environment and safe handling of PII on premise.
