But how do you know if it is time to upgrade your commercial lighting?

The importance of up to date lighting in the workplace
As an employer, it is your duty to consider the wellbeing of your employees. This includes ensuring that the workplace has safe and efficient lighting in all areas and that they meet the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
Poor lighting can have a negative impact on how well your employees perform. Their motivation can drop in poor lighting conditions, meaning their productivity will do the same. What’s more, Fluorescent lighting can cause headaches and eye-straining, which will lead to additional health issues. By upgrading to LED lighting, your team will continue to work efficiently and in good health!
You can even add sensors to your LED lights so that they only switch on when necessary. This is a great way to help save energy and money as the lights will only be in use if required. The best thing about sensors is that you don’t need to remember to switch them off as they will do it on their own!
LED lighting and energy-saving halogen bulbs are more energy-efficient than the majority of the older lighting systems that are still used in commercial premises and offices. Upgrading your system to new bulbs will benefit the environment and your pocket.
During the winter months, external lighting on the premises of your business plays a role in the impact of your staff and property security.
Good lighting around doors and paths will offer a sense of safety to your staff when they enter and leave the premises throughout the day. They can also follow walkways with ease to get to their car or to the pavement.
You will also want to keep your premises secure, which can be done with the help of security lighting. Dark areas that can offer criminals the opportunity to keep themselves hidden can now be lit with motion sensors. This will again, save energy, but will also ensure that no neighbours are disturbed with noise pollution throughout the night.
