The study:

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive sample of 1000 Aus­tralian in­door work­ers par­tic­i­pated in the re­search. Sur­vey par­tic­i­pants were asked about the nat­u­ral el­e­ments they could see from their workspace, in­clud­ing the num­ber and type of nat­u­ral wood­en­look­ing ob­jects they could see. They were also asked about the pres­ence of other things that af­fect the well­be­ing of work­ers, in­clud­ing noise lev­els, ac­cess to nat­u­ral light, and their work­place cul­ture. Fi­nally, they were asked to self-rate their well­be­ing, work­place sat­is­fac­tion and per­sonal dis­tress us­ing val­i­dated mea­sures that are used world­wide to as­sess well­be­ing, health and men­tal health dis­or­ders. Over two thirds of in­door work­ers sur­veyed were in an of­fice, with the re­main­der split be­tween shops and fac­to­ries/ware­houses. The study was funded by For­est & Wood Prod­ucts Aus­tralia (FWPA), which had no in­put on the struc­ture of the study.
