Office work can be visually demanding, tiring and can be made even worse by poor lighting. The effects of working in a dull environment are not just on the eyes but also on the back and muscles if you are having to stretch and strain.

Everyone knows that staring at a computer screen for hours every day comes with many of its own problems. However, having to alter between the brightness of the screen and the dullness of office lighting can, over time, cause injury.

As an employer, your legal duty is to ensure your employees do not sustain injuries or illnesses, both of which can be caused by poor lighting.

Illuminating your office in the correct manner can help make your staff happier, healthier and more productive. The cost of having the correct lighting fitted is far outweighed by the health benefits for your employees.

LED Lighting for businesses - Your questions answered

What are the health benefits of LED lights?
LED lights give off light that is more akin to natural daylight, some of the health benefits are:

  • Increased employee motivation and commitment

  • Improved concentration and energy

  • "Mood support" in wellness and dining areas

Are LED lights safe in enclosed fixtures?
Yes, because LED technology uses a heat sink, which draws most of the heat to one place, and keeps the electronics relatively cool. Keeping the bulb cool is one of the reasons LEDs have long lifespans. The other reason is simply that an LED does not waste its energy through heat, and the bulk of it is used to provide light.

Are LED lights safe?
The short answer is: There are safe levels of every kind of light and dangerous levels of every kind of light. Knowledge and standards help manufacturers and lighting designers to navigate the vast area in between.

4 Reasons why LEDs are the answer to your poor office lighting

1. Long life bulbs

A longer life span means lower carbon emissions. LED Lights last up to six times longer than other types of lights, so you won’t be forever replacing light bulbs and incurring extra costs.

2. Reduce glare and flicker on computer screens

LEDs can be repositioned to help reduce eye strain, dry eyes and headaches suffered by employees.

3. Environmentally friendly

You can achieve the optimum level of lighting without the maintenance of old style lights. LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat.

4. A more affordable and viable option

LED lighting for businesses has become more popular. If you are considering a full install the right solution for you will not break the bank.
