Environmental Testing: What makes a Healthy Work Environment?

By Jamess William Subscribe to RSS | July 17th 2012 | Views:

Every employee and employer strives to create a healthy work environment. Having a good working environment does not only mean great office mates and a good computer, there are so many factors that make up a healthy working environment and to achieve this the staff can either do the regular testing themselves or better yet, hire a company that offers environmental testing.

Hiring someone else to do the job would be the better option, especially if you are hiring a testing agency that has done this work for quite some time now. It’s better to depend on them since they already know what they are doing and only they have the right equipment for the job.

So what makes a healthy work environment? In order to consider a workplace “healthy” here are some of the top 3 things that you should check in the office:


A workplace should be lighted properly in order for employees to see what they are doing which could eventually lead to an increase in production. Poor lighting can result to eye discomfort and eye strain which can lead to poor eyesight. It is important that lighting standards will always pass the standards set by the Australian Standard AS 1680 – 1990. Anything lower than the standard set, will result to an unhealthy working environment.


Another factor which should be highly considered during environmental testing is ventilation. Proper ventilation means that there is proper and normal movement of air inside the office. Employers should figure out the ratio of the number of employees to the number of air conditioning units installed inside the room. If there are too much people, and only one air conditioning unit, there is no proper ventilation resulting to suffocation of anyone inside. This should meet the standards set by the Australian Standard AS 1668. Employees should be comfortable while working so that work can be done fast and efficiently.

Temperature and Humidity

Getting just the right temperature and levels of humidity inside a work place can make working so much fun and enjoyable. On the other hand getting the wrong temperature and humidity levels keeps people from doing their work. The best temperature to work with in Australia is around 20 – 26 Celsius and is two degrees lower during the summer months. Humidity on the other hand, also has to be controlled because if the levels are not normal, it can cause discomfort and dryness inside the office. The average humidity level is anywhere between 40-60%

Whether you are conducting microwave testing or emergency light testing, or even work environment testing all these things should be settled and arranged to create a happier working environment.
