LED Lighting in the Workplace
May 12 2019
We have discussed LED lighting in different aspects of our social and professional structures. Specifically, we have looked into lighting in the steel and dairy industries. While these are certainly workplaces for many, we want to talk about less industrial workplaces which can benefit from LEDs in different ways.
These can be offices, shops, restaurants, Banks or any interior space that requires lighting operations. This is not to say that outdoor Spaces cannot benefit from leds either. They can be covered in different ways in different articles.
The first reason is that LED lighting in the workplace is good for you and the people who work there, and it's safe. We don't just mean it prevents you from tripping over open desk drawers or falling over fire escapes.
The average American worked 1,783 hours a year in 2016, according to the oecd. This is an average level that includes both part-time and full-time workers. Working in an office with little access to natural light has known adverse effects on humans. It interrupts our circadian rhythms, and non-leds (like CFL and metal halide bulbs) emit ultraviolet and infrared light pollution, which can have a negative impact on our physical and mental health.
With LED lighting in the workplace, the type of light can be controlled, not only for the type of work being performed, but also for the time it occurs. The relatively pure blue light in LED has almost no ultraviolet pollution, which is better for our body. Leds don't completely block our circadian rhythms. Any exposure to sunlight will have some effect on us. All they can do is provide the right light at the right time
Leds don't flash like CFLS, which can lead to long periods of pain. This means workers can avoid light pollution more safely and sleep better at night. This helps to improve the mental health of workers, at least to a certain extent.
Another effect of improving security is to make your employees more productive. They don't get tired of ignoring tasks or ignoring mistakes, which can cause big problems for any business. Stimulating staff is a better business model. This means they will be more willing to start work, happier to create business and less likely to slack off due to poor health due to light.
Recent research shows that happy workers are more productive and efficient. This means an efficient office is a well-lit office.
If you're looking for an office and want to be as profitable as possible, it's not just about productivity. Managers often have to cut fat to increase profitability, waste money on lightbulbs inexpensively, and durability is not the main reason. LED lighting has proved more durable than CFL and metal halides. They don't wear out like fluorescent bulbs, and they prevent damage.
With the extended life of LED lighting, your workplace can become a healthier, happier and more efficient place to work.
