Governing bodies in both the European Union and Canada have departments to oversee work related health issues in the area of worker or employee stress.The EU guides company managers to be on the lookout for employee related stress problems in the following areas when:
workers’ motivation is down
work satisfaction is low
absenteeism is high
turn overs are on the rise
productivity is decreasing
workers don’t care any more
accidents and mistakes are on the rise
inefficiency is rising
In Canada the government has told companies that is a boss repeatedly puts impossible deadlines on employees and over time this overwhelming stress causes a worker mental breakdown the boss will be held responsible for the care of the worker stricken.
There is a major change coming how employers can treat workers. The antiquated concept of the workplace being “run like a factory” and the workers are something to be “dealt with or eliminated” thankfully is changing.
When we treat everyone as family and support them-not demand endlessly of them, the company will develop a strong caring and productive culture.
The Healthy Living Center is here to consult with individuals, families and companies that wish to develop a healthy supportive culture to thrive in.

“The International Bottled Water Association, ever sensitive to criticism that it’s wasting precious resources, has commissioned its first ever study to figure out how much water goes into producing one liter. Released this month the data shows that for North American companies
to make 1 liter of your favorite liquid beverage requires:
* 1.39 liters to make one liter of water.
* 2.02 liters of water for 1 liter of soda.
* 4 liters of water to make 1 liter of beer,
* 4.74 liters to make 1 liter of wine. Hard alcohol, it turns out, is the greediest, guzzling
*34.55 liters of water for every liter of hard liquor.
Plus environmental activists have estimated that about 50 billion (mostly plastic) bottles are thrown away every year.
