The average Australian spends 90 per cent of their time indoors. For many people a large proportion of that time is spent in the office – eight hours a day, five days a week (and often more). But what are these offices doing to our health? Are they providing a healthy environment in which to be spending such a large chunk of our lives? Are they conducive to human sustainability? And are these environments enabling us to perform at our best? These questions are being asked by more and more leading companies, and in the past few years have blossomed into what’s being called “the next wave of sustainability”: workplace health and wellness.
This book aims to be a guide to better, healthier offices.
