Environmental Fitness

Environmental Fitness is the ability to perform your tasks in any operational environment.

We all need to be aware of environmental challenges and make sure they do not pose a threat to our health.

A well-organized work environment can also optimize performance, enhance mental or spiritual wellness, and help avoid potential hazards. Time spent organizing your environment is likely to pay off in the long term.
