Businesses and workplaces in Brisbane and Gold Coast need to provide a steady supply of fresh and clean drinking water to the people employed there. And while they can rely on water that comes out of their town water taps, that water is not always fresh or clean. Fortunately, you can get commercial water coolers, which offer many benefits for employees.
Commercial Water Coolers are Environmentally Friendly
Commercial water coolers use clean spring water in large 15 litre plastic bottles. While you could supply 600ml bottled water to your employees, that would create a lot of plastic waste every day. That is not environmentally friendly, nor is it financially feasible.
What is really in our drinking water that comes through the taps?
If you were to read about all the chemicals that are allowed to be placed in our drinking water to clean and detoxify it, then you would probably stop drinking water altogether. Chemicals such as aluminium sulphate, ammonia and chlorine; this is just three of the chemicals put into our water out of the 32 chemicals that are used.
It is scary when you think about how much ‘poison’ goes into the water and it makes you wonder what it is doing to our bodies. Fortunately, there is a very good solution to this problem. Continue reading →
Water makes up a very large part of our bodies. Without it, we wouldn’t survive. The human body comprises 60% water, 70% water for the brain, 90% for lungs and 83% for blood, and that’s not all. It’s pretty clear that water is more than extremely important. It sustains us to keep us alive. Continue reading →
We all know how vitally important water is for us. It nourishes our bodies and minds and offers many health benefits.

The good news is, the highest quality drinking water is available and attainable, right in your own home or office.

Whether it’s in the home or the office, more and more people are cottoning on to the benefits of drinking filtered water and having water filters added in their Brisbane homes and offices. If you are unsure about the benefits filtered water offer, keep reading to discover why drinking filtered water is good for you and why so many people are making the change.
Many people will remember the lyrics of the song “Cool, Clear Water,” which became popular by singers such as Frankie Laine and Johnny Cash, not so long ago in the late 1900s. However, one important word is missing from that title: PURE. Safe and pure water is what everyone hopes to be drinking.
The practice of using water additives such as chlorine and fluoride is no longer considered safe by all. Chlorine was previously introduced to eradicate waterborne diseases and fluoride in tap water was to eradicate tooth decay, but they are now found to be harmful to our bodies and no longer necessary, particularly where chlorine is concerned. Researchers have found chlorine water to be cancer causing and have marked an increase in cases of cancer following the introduction of this toxic substance to our water.
One of the basic requirements that an employer must provide for the health and safety of their employees is a ready supply of fresh, clean, uncontaminated water. Sometimes in difficult economic circumstances when a business is looking at ways to cut costs, there may be a temptation to remove the office water coolers and substitute them with tap water, bottled and placed in the staff refrigerator. However, this method is not cost effective as it requires someone to be responsible for keeping up the regular supply and it introduces a health risk if the water is stored too long before consumption, or becomes contaminated during refills.
Modern management theory now recognises that one of the most valuable assets that a business has is its staff, and millions of dollars each year are spent by companies in training and development activities to build and sustain morale. Even the most successful business can be ruined if the staff members cannot work together as a team, and often, it is the little things that can cause friction and disharmony. Seemingly silly things like weeks of summer heat and no water coolers in the office is enough to start a conflict that drains energy and distracts everyone from the important tasks needed to be done to actually run the business.
