From the workers’ perspective, poor lightening at work can lead to eye-strain, fatigue, headaches, stress & accidents. On other hand, too much light can also cause safety & health problems such as “glare” headaches & stress. Both can lead to mistakes at work, poor quality & low productivity.
The quality of lighting in a workplace can have a significant effect on productivity. With adequate lighting, workers can work efficiently which can lead to 10-50% increase in productivity. Good lightening can decrease errors by 30-60% as well as decrease the eye strain.
EVPL uses Lux Meter for measuring illuminances in work places. Illuminnance is common parameter while studying illumination measurement. It defines or measures the amount of light is falling on unit surface area of workplace and its Unit is lux (lx). It is used to evaluate the capability of lighting for seeing an object.
At EVPL, we also provide mitigation measures regarding illumination study.
