New Website Promotes Greater Health And Wellbeing In UK Workplaces

Healthyworkspaces.com is a new website bringing the UK’s business community products and information geared to promote improved health and wellbeing in workspaces. One recent study indicated people working indoors often experience symptoms such as headaches, shortness of breath, coughing or nausea due to airborne pollutants ranging from toxic cleaning solvents to dust, pollen and mould.

“The goal of our new website is to help companies across the UK combat bad indoor air problems, which can lead to increased sick time and decreased work productivity, ” says David Noble, founder of Healthy Workspaces.

“We have created a website to widen understanding about the negative impact of bad indoor air in all work environments including open plan offices, shops, medical surgeries, hospitals, crèches and care homes – and provide solutions with products delivering leading edge technologies.”

The time humans spend indoors has grown at an alarming rate, with studies showing we typically spend less than 10% of our lives outside. At the same time, new energy efficient buildings are being constructed almost as tight as plastic bags, which do not ventilate reliably and encourage polluted air to accumulate.

“The air we breathe indoors can be as much as 100 times more polluted than the air on the street, according to a study by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency”, notes David Noble.

Delivering quick and easy access to essential information on indoor air quality issues as well as products to clean indoor air of viruses, bacteria and other potentially harmful pollutants, healthyworkspaces.com is aimed at firms who want to improve the wellbeing of their work staff, customers and others. With a modern, colourful design, the website is divided into two key sections: information about indoor air problems and the products to solve them.

“This fantastic new website has been developed to provide information to business owners across the United Kingdom and Ireland.” says David Noble. “Our research has told us what was needed and we hope that our new site does just that”.
