Human Health

The Breakdown

The design community has a responsibility to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the occupants we design. The human health pledge statement commits designers to include the evaluation of emissions and harmful substances in products as part of The Standard of Care. It also commits design professionals to consider the material ingredients in manufacturing and the impact on workers and surrounding communities.
