Take a Safety Break
Another great way for employers to minimize stress in the workplace is by enhancing the overall comfort of the office. One way to do this is by scheduling an ergonomic evaluation, in which a Department specialist assesses how the workplace conditions and equipment are affecting the level of safety, comfort, and efficiency of the workers. Reducing screen glare, adding a simple footrest, or finding a taller office chair can make a world of difference. In turn, the more comfortable an employee is at work, the more productive and efficient he/she will be.
