Good Lighting In The Workplace

Let there be light

Light has a huge effect on us humans – it is what sets our body clock. This is why the quality of workplace lighting is so important, even though it is often overlooked by businesses worldwide. Apart from the necessity factor, good lighting also brings aesthetic advantages to your workplace and can affect budgets massively too, so it’s important you make a clear strategy for the best solution. Most businesses don’t realise that such simple, practical steps can yield enormous financial benefits for their businesses:

Simple ideas

Installing LED Panels into your workspace or office can be a very effective option. This will provide you with top quality lighting and will save you money in the long term too. Lighting colour is also important to consider as this can affect ambience in a space. LED lights are available in warm or cool shades depending on the look you are trying to achieve, so they are the most flexible option.

If you still have fluorescent lighting, make sure to replace flickering bulbs as this can be a for trigger epileptic seizures and is bad for employees’ eye-sight too. You can reduce shadows by using overhead light fixtures such as panel lights. Understanding that different tasks require different levels of light is another important item to consider. Computer usage may require minimal lighting while other tasks require more intense lighting. Age can affect the type of light needed. Older people require a much higher type of light to work effectively.

Start planning 

Building owners and executives have the potential to add value, reduce costs and enhance employee performance through the application of good lighting in the workplace. It’s no secret that people are attracted to well-lit public facilities, shops and parks.

It is common that a commercial building was designed years or decades ago and used for a different type of business then it is now, therefore lighting can be totally wrong for the building’s new purpose. We recommended that you talk with a lighting expert to revamp your lighting to fit your current needs and benefit your working environment.
