This paper presents a proposal to research the fact that both psychologically and physically unhealthy conditions are still reported in the workplace despite the increased focus on employee well-being in the business world. The author intends to focus on three specific work areas notorious for their unsafe conditions and frequent lack of adequate safety standards: the office environment, construction industry, and the cockle picking industry. The researcher will collect both theoretical data from the Internet, the press and books, and practical data from health and safety professionals as well as from the targeted work areas. The objectives of the study are to arrive at a deeper understanding of the underlying factors relating to a lack of safety awareness by individuals in the workplace, and to suggest ways to empower individuals for greater well-being both in their work and general lives.
