Office Plants

Doctors recommend indoor plants!

The importance of the health and welfare of the human resource element of any business cannot be ignored. With risk management being an important consideration for any management team, we’d do well to heed the words of the medical profession.

The term risk management refers to the identification and minimisation of any threat to the on-going activities important to an organisation. The medical fraternity has come out in support of the growing mass of scientific evidence on the health risks associated with the polluted air of an office environment – ignoring this would be counterproductive to the performance of any organisation.

Indoor pollutants, commonly referred to as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), are present within all modern work environments. The benefits of incorporating indoor plants into office layouts are supported by the extensive scientific studies on the subject by Professor Dr Tøve Fjeld from University of Norway; Dr Loretta Lanphier, a Doctor of Naturopathy and a clinical nutritionist, and many others.

The collective conclusions of these modern studies indicate that the presence of indoor plants reduce the risk of ill health by providing a practical and reasonably priced solution to the removal of air borne toxins. This has encouraged the medical professionals to emphatically endorse the need to include indoor plants in the workplace.

Dr Loretta Lanphier, a Doctor of Naturopathy and a clinical nutritionist, who has undertaken extensive research in health science, shares her views in her publication titled: Setting up Your Office for Health.

Dr Lanphier encourages the establishment of a stimulating and nurturing office environment. Lanphier, CEO and founder of Oasis Advanced Wellness, suggests that we should be aware of the problems that can negatively affect us. In doing so, we’ll be able us to take adequate counter measures and provide an office that is balanced and conducive to the good health and wellbeing of both the individual and thereby the organisation.

Indoor plants do far more than just enhance the beauty of the surroundings; they offer us a low cost method of removing pollutants from the air and also add oxygen and humidity to the indoor environment. With the correlation between the presence of indoor plants in the workplace and improved health being clearly evident, it makes sense to include these into any design.
