How the Right Design Secures Health and Safety for Your Team

Posted by Evolve Design Team on May 23, 2017 11:26:49 AM

There are many factors which contribute to a successful office design. You need your office to give the right impression to visitors. You need the space to support goal completion and optimal performance and, of course, you need a working environment that safeguards the health of your team.

So, how can you make sure that your office design is geared towards health and safety? Take a look at these tips and secure a suitable workplace for your team.

Don’t Lose Your Cool

Summer in the UAE can be stiflingly hot, which makes keeping cool and refreshed in the workplace one of the main health and safety concerns for your next office fit-out. Make sure the design supports a healthy approach to the heat – for example, by including tinted windows or blinds in your design to control how much sunlight enters the room, and by making space for drinking fountains and other refreshing amenities.

Proactive Health

Health and safety is about far more than just preventing accidents; it is also about promoting an actively healthy lifestyle and fostering general well-being. This can be achieved by incorporating shower facilities into your office design, or even by making room for exercise equipment. Taking these steps marks you out as an employer who really takes the health of their workforce seriously.

Keep the Human in Mind

Remember the fundamentals of what you are trying to achieve; you are trying to achieve a workspace which is safe for humans to use. So, it is time to think about the tasks these humans will have to complete on a daily basis.

Think ergonomically. Make sure that all handles and carry trays are designed with the user in mind. Ensure that carry boxes and other containers will not be overloaded and cause a back injury. See to it that all office chairs have the necessary lumbar support; all of these elements are key ingredients to an ergonomically sound workplace.

Don’t Forget Psychological Health

Psychological health is as much of a concern as physical health in the workplace. Your UAE office design must support this too. Consider the experience that your staff have in your office – is it a noisy environment, is it full of distraction and stress? Are there areas in which your staff can get some downtime?

Does your office receive enough natural light to help to lift your team’s mood? This is how your design can actively safeguard the psychological health of your staff.
