Lighting in the Workplace

It is important for a number of reasons that the lighting in your workplace or business premises is of a certain standard that will allow your staff to work comfortably also keeping them safe. By having good quality lighting, people will be able to spot a potential hazard and this will reduce the chances of an accident through not seeing an obstruction.

Here are some points to consider with your work place lighting.



Poor quality lighting will cause a number of issues with employees. Eye strain, headaches and a lack of concentration are quite common which can lead to a less productive day at work. This could also lead to staff members taking days off which will cost the business money.

The people that are responsible for the quality of the work lighting are the employer’s, people that are in charge of any non-domestic premises and the self-employed. You are duty bound to ensure that the lighting is safe to avoid any accidents or incidents.

The workplace lighting should be monitored on a regular basis so everything is in full working order.
