A new item of legislation is to be passed under the existing 'Health and Safety at work' suite of laws.
Following several health studies undertaken between April 2007 and October 2009, it is evident that many office workers continue to experience Pseudo-Airflight Syndrome (PAS). This is the notion and feeling of light-headedness, nausea and a dry mouth, after sitting in the same seat for extended periods.
In extreme cases of PAS, some workers expect a pre-prepared heated meal to be brought to their desk by a glamorous stewardess, or the desire to put on polystyrene disposable slippers. Some workers even long to tune in and settle down to a modern movie on their PC.
The new law is to be introduced on February 1st, following a media-based campaign. It will serve to ensure that all employers for office-based organizations are supplied with fitted seatbelts to their office chairs. In addition, a daily safety demonstration, and brown paper 'sick' bags are also to be supplied.
