Testopedia explains LEED AP Operations + Maintenance (LEED AP O+M)
Operations in a building are handled to make sure that the building in question is designed and maintained with an appropriate amount of control based on what one wants to get out of running different items. This includes working with plans to manage water use by handling appropriate fixtures and maintaining them with recurring checks to see that everything is running well and is not using more water than necessary. Operations also includes knowing how to work with LED lights and other energy-saving materials as well as how to dispose of mercury and other items that have to be removed in order to keep an area operating with healthy considerations in mind.
