To better align with our company's vision and the needs of the New York City business community, Lotus Safety Solutions has changed its name to Lotus Biosecurity. Our business came into existence to help businesses and properties deal with fragmented, inconsistent, and often incoherent compliance burdens and regulations caused by COVID-19. We chose Lotus Safety Solutions as our original name to highlight our position as a one-stop medical and engineering solutions provider for businesses and properties in the greater New York City region.
Our business has grown rapidly since launch. As we've worked with owners and managers, trained staffs and employees, and implemented solutions across the city, it's become more and more clear that the pandemic is not a unique event, but a shift in the entire business paradigm.
There will never be a time in our future when businesses can ignore the threats that infection poses to lives and livelihoods. There is also emerging scientific evidence that safe, healthy buildings offer measurable benefits with regard to worker productivity, consumer behavior, and occupant happiness.
For all of these reasons, we decided that, while "safety solutions" are part of what we will continue to offer, our higher purpose is to provide our clients trustworthy, evidence-based leadership in this new era of heightened medical, biological, and epidemiological threats.
Lotus Biosecurity exists to protect the life of this new economy, during and beyond our current challenges.
