Ergonomic lighting is crucial for workplace wellness and preventing Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). CVS affects around 90% of employees throughout their working life, with symptoms including headaches and dry eyes! Lighting, be it too strong or weak, is the major contributing factor to eye strain. Lighting Design is a greater challenge because each individual has specific requirements. Those employees in their earlier years will find less requirement for bright lighting but once a person gets to their 60’s they can require up to three times the amount of light. Making use of dual source lighting, in which both overhead lighting and an adjustable task light are used, is a more effective way to provide perfect light levels. Adding a task light to each desk reduces eye strain by providing the ability to have an optimise your source of light.
Office Lighting needs careful planning and an understanding of lumen requirements for specific task areas. If this is not considered or the angle or the angle light output causes glare in a task area then lighting can be perceived to be too bright. Break-out spaces need to be less bright as this enables employees to have a space in which to relax.
Exposure to fluorescent (and other lower quality) lighting in offices is often the cause of eye strain that can lead to headaches. Flickering lighting increases this chance of resultant headaches and migraines (among sufferers). The use of LEDs with control systems means flicker is very unlikely and lumen output can be managed to meet an environment's exact requirements.
