Industrial & Organisational : Introduction : Personnel : Organizational psychology : Occupations: Work environment: Index : Outline

Working space is an aspect of working conditions and focuses on particular characteristics of the physical environment within which work is conducted. This would include such features as amount of space and ambient levels of light and noise. Such factors have been shown to effect productivity on the one hand and threaten physical and mental health on the other.
