4 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade the Lighting in Your Workplace

Lighting sets the tone of the entire office, and can drastically influence how employees and clients feel in the space. Proper office lighting is essential to a productive office, and offers employees many psychological and physical benefits. An efficient lighting system can also save money on electricity and reduce your company’s impact on the environment. Here are 4 reasons you should consider upgrading your company’s lighting today.

  1. Improves productivity
    Appropriate lighting can drastically increase employee productivity, while poor lighting can reduce productivity because dimly lit spaces make people feel lethargic. Spaces that are properly illuminated without being over lit make people feel energized.

  2. Reduce injury
    Proper illumination can do a lot to reduce workplace injuries. Whether you are concerned about employees in a warehouse environment operating equipment or office workers at their desks proper illumination is an important factor in reducing injuries. Not only do people need to be able to see what they are doing and where they are going, but dim lighting causes eye strain, which can cause damage over time. Emergency exits and stairwells should also be properly illuminated, and the exits clearly marked with light up EXIT signs, so that employees and clients alike can exit the building safely in case of an emergency.

  3. Reduce power consumption
    A significant amount of energy goes towards lighting in commercial buildings. To reduce your power consider updating your lighting so that it uses LEDs, which provide brighter illumination at a fraction of the power usage compared to incandescent lights. This not only reduces your company’s environmental impact but also offers significant financial savings.

  4. Save on maintenance and replacement costs
    LEDs have a significantly longer lifespan than fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs, which means they will need to be replaced less often. This in turn saves you money on maintenance and replacement related costs, and produces less waste. LEDs are also mercury free, unlike fluorescent light bulbs, making them safer and easier to recycle and significantly reducing your company’s impact on the environment.
