Quest 3- Office Based Worker: Risk #3 Office Designs

 

Every employers goal is to uphold a productive and efficient workplace, but there are many common office  habits and factors that contribute to the output of work. It is important to make the office space as comfortable as possible, seeing as research has proven that your work environment has an impact on how you function at work. There are many ways you can ensure that your office space is as comfortable as possible:

 

LIGHTING:

Research has shown bad lighting can cause eye strain and fatigue, simply by raising light levels in the office it increases productivity by 8% and decreases accidents by 52%. Also access to natural light is crucial and research has again shown that exposure to daylight vs artifical light enhances alertness and cognitive functioning.

 

COLOUR:

Research has shown that colour effects mood productivity and that both white and grey can be un-motivating. Different colours have different wavelengths and the level of wavelength determins how much energy we need to exert to detect it.

 

TEMPERATURE:

Occupational Health and Safety Administration recommends office temperatures to be slightly warmer. Research from Cornwell found that when the temperature of an office is raised, typing errors fell by 44% and work output increased dramatically.

 

SPACE:

To be more productive at work, you have to be comfortable both physically and psychologically. From a physical or ergonomic perspective, the position of your keyboard, screen/s and chair all make a huge impact on how you function and the level of fatigue you will likely experience.

Is there anyone that does not love this chair? The were originally produced starting around 1917 in two colors, red and the natural zinc coated metal also called galvanized steel. Today they are produced in a rainbow of colors.
