More than half of Brits worry about poor air quality in the workplace, study finds

Have you ever taken the time to consider if there are any deficiencies in the way your company approaches health and safety? Perhaps you’ve encountered an incident that didn’t prompt the response you expected?

We asked 2,000 adults about their workplace experiences, and some staggering revelations encouraged us to create our own quiz on the subject.

71 per cent of those polled said their desks are not configured properly, meaning they regularly suffer aches and pains.

More than half (55 per cent) openly complain about poor air quality, with many believing they often forgo breathing in fresh air for the entire day.

Andrews teams up with CACT to execute Stay Warm, Stay Safe programme

Winter can be a particularly daunting time for some of our community’s most vulnerable people, with the imminent soaring of energy prices likely to make the season even more challenging going forward.

That’s why we are proud to once again be working alongside the Charlton Athletic Community Trust to positively influence the lives of those who desperately require assistance.

Commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the annual Stay Warm Stay Safe campaign has one primary objective – to help the less fortunate members of society by heating their homes while cold weather persists.

Television and warmth crucial to a good night in, survey finds

The perfect cosy night in includes watching something on the telly, pizza for dinner and good company.

Brits also say they try to create their very own perfect night as often as 12 nights a month – with 79 per cent doing so more commonly during the winter.

Spending quality time with partners, getting to wear cosy pyjamas and not caring about personal appearance were all cited as being key components of cosiness.

While the study of 2,000 adults found the darkness and cold of the season are the main reasons people are staying in, 36 per cent admit to keeping their wits about them due to the new Omicron strain.

Six in ten Brits demand air conditioning while working from home, survey finds

According to a recent study, more than 60% of Brits want their bosses to provide air conditioning while working from home.

On average, productivity is said to decrease by a third during hot temperatures, with 44% of the 2,000 adults asked admitting they struggle to stay on top of their workload when the mercury soars.

Two in five respondents actively seek a different room or area to work in a bid to overcome warmer conditions, while a quarter confessed to sitting near an open fridge or freezer!

A similar proportion of those surveyed have previously refused to work when the heat has been too extreme, with a temperature of 28⁰C commonly cited as being too hot for general exertion.

Many Brits intend to persevere with masks and social distancing despite government restrictions easing, a recent study by Andrews Sykes has found.

We conducted a survey of 2,000 adults who revealed their thoughts and attitudes towards the idea of reverting to normal life once the pandemic subsides.

A staggering 50 per cent of respondents admit they will continue wearing masks for the foreseeable future, despite there being no legal obligation to do so in most settings.

One in three will insist on sitting away from anyone they don’t know in pubs and restaurants, while 28 per cent will still ask for a table outside and 24 per cent will insist on table service.
