WELS definition

WELS means a web-based early learning data system used by Early Achievers partners including DEL, University of Washington and Child Care Aware regional lead agencies to track and maintain data including facility/site participation, evaluation information, and quality improvement progress. (Note: WA Compass will be the system that replaces WELS in 2018; WA Compass is the Washington State centralized database where DEL employees can document and monitor activities related to providers and contractors. It is where contractors will be able to access information about all sites from one landing page. The system will include licensing, Early Achievers and ECEAP monitoring information. WA Compass does not replace MERIT or ELMS.)
WELS means workplace exposure limits, which are set under COSHH in order to help protect the health of workers. They are the maximum concentration of an airborne substance, averaged over a reference period, to which employees may be exposed by inhalation.
