To ensure work is productive, workers need the right conditions for work. A workspace needs to provide a stable indoor environment by simulating and responding to the environment outside. As the seasons change, a workspace needs to adapt and adjust in order to meet the needs of workers. Indoor climates are affected by many things - sunlight, colours, plants and temperature, for example. Desktop computers and electrical equipment generate heat and an enclosed office space can easily become warm and dry. It is important for workers to stay hydrated as dehydration causes muscles tension increasing the risk of strain injuries whilst sitting at a desk.1 To stay hydrated, workers need to drink between 1.5 - 2 liters of water per day2. Ensuring easy access to water at the workplace is important when creating an ergonomic, productive and healthy workspace.
