Who Needs High/Low Bay Lighting?
Cost and use aren’t the only lighting considerations you need to make if your business operates with any industrial buildings or warehouses. It’s also important to ensure you’re adhering to health and safety law – and maximising your staff productivity.
Health and Safety
The UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have detailed guidelines on appropriate lighting conditions in the workplace – and there’s no one-size-fits-all, especially in industrial settings where working tasks can be extremely diverse.
Processing areas in an industrial food production environment should be lit to 590-700 lux illumination. However, the same production line should have a 1180-1400 lux lighting level when products reach an inspection area – ensuring the job can be done easily and to the required standard.
Although those considerations might appeal simple on the surface, it’s also worth remembering that health and safety lighting law also requires that you factor in machinery that could be used across all areas, worker’s eye health when transitioning from area-to-area – and much more.
Although it might not appear so at first glance, health and safety and worker productivity are closely linked when lighting is concerned.
Being able to quickly and correctly pick, pack, inspect, construct or maintain is done much more efficiently with the right lighting conditions – and minutes that are lost daily can add up to hundreds or even thousands of working hours lost annually.
Industrial building are large – and a variety of operations can be taking place under the same roof, meaning lighting solutions are rarely simple.
Guides to lighting can seem to be complex technical documents for those who aren’t familiar with electrical terms, however, the team here at Simat are just a phone call or email away if you require any support – it’s our business to make sense of your business’s electrical requirements.
