There are so many benefits to LEDs that go beyond reducing electricity use, saving money and increasing property value.
Did you know that the advanced technological features LEDs provide can also help create a healthier and safer work environment? This article will show you how!
LEDs Help Prevent Workplace Accidents
LEDs provide bright light that can illuminate all areas of the workplace. This can go a long way in preventing trips and falls in poorly lit areas and can be especially important in environments where heavy machinery and dangerous equipment is being used.
LED lighting provides a full spectrum of light that eliminates shadows so employees are fully aware of their environment for a safer workspace overall.
LEDs Are Reliable During Emergencies
Emergencies may be rare, but it’s always reassuring to know that LEDs can be counted on to provide clear, bright and reliable light during a crisis. Their use in garages and stairwells make them absolutely essential during an emergency.
LEDs Can Help Protect Your Property
Sometimes the best way to avoid danger is to shine a light in its direction. LEDs provide bright light that can illuminate the darkest places and can be installed with motion sensors that will shine light on any intrusion in your workplace or home.
LEDs Are Human-Centric
Human-centric lighting (HCL) is a set of practices that can customize lighting to suit an environment.
Workplaces have different lighting requirements than residential spaces. LEDs can be adjusted according to their colour spectrum so employees can be more productive in the workplace. Unlike compact fluorescent bulbs, LEDs do not “flicker” or make a buzzing noise that can cause headaches and tension in sensitive individuals.
Residential and lounge spaces can also benefit greatly from the use of LEDs. Colour adjustment and dimming features can be customized for LEDs to create the perfect lighting conditions for any commercial or residential space.
Choose LEDs for a Healthier, Happier Workforce
LEDs are best known for their cost benefits, low electricity usage and benefits to the environment. Property owners are also keen to upgrade to LEDs because they increase property values.
The positive aspects of LEDs, however, extend far beyond their economic benefits. LEDs can contribute to a healthier and safer work environment by helping prevent accidents and providing reliable bright light in times of emergency. LEDs can also help create optimal lighting conditions to suit any commercial or residential environment.
For all these reasons and more, an investment in LEDs can pay massive dividends in the long term. Schedule an audit today with one of our experts to learn how our LED technology can help you save money and improve health and safety in the workplace - all while benefitting the planet!
