Ensuring that a workspace is fitted with adequate lighting is of paramount importance as lighting plays a role in security, safety and overall productivity, says specialised lamps supplier The Lamphouse.
Converting factory lighting to light-emitting diode (LED) light fixtures will promote a safe and harmonious work environment for both employers and employees.
Over the past decade, the company has seen substantial changes in the factory work environment. The advent of industrialism has forced these spaces to rethink how they operate, succeed and look.
LED lighting has played a significant role in this shift as it contributes to machinery operations, factory efficiency and safety regulations.
Modern factories are not only built with productivity in mind but rather ensuring optimum safety for all.
The addition of efficient lighting has, therefore, become more complex and highly demanded, particularly during peak operations, The Lamphouse explains.
The introduction of LED lighting has allowed factories to attain optimal efficiency, quality and corporate morale.
“The game has subsequently changed for those willing to make an investment in LEDs. “While others have jumped at the opportunity to evolve working spaces for the better, others still require a little more convincing,” the company says.
The Lamphouse highlights how many factory owners experience the pressure of reducing their operational costs. This is based on the ripple effects that high operational costs have. High overhead bills mean a subsequent price increase on all final products.
In reality, cutting down operational and maintenance costs is advanced by switching to energy efficient LED lighting solutions.
The growing consensus is that energy efficient technologies continue to take policy priority as companies look to tackle climate change.
The gains from the versatile, high-powered lighting solution are significant as these solutions have continued to revolutionise various industries. The lighting solutions also contribute to a cleaner, healthier and more ecofriendly future adding to its appeal, it adds.
LED lighting enhances quality checks and inspection processes and improves risk control as it improves safety and security, and promotes superior supervision of staff by managers.
Further, there is higher staff accuracy and workmanship and a decrease in factory accidents with these low maintenance lighting options, while LEDs are temperature adaptable.
Employees can easily identify hazards, while being able to clearly read work instructions, warnings, safety data and product details.
LED lighting improves employee alertness, increases labour productivity, and decreases adverse health issues, such as eye strain, in addition to improving working conditions and overall health and wellness.
The company explains that, the Fluence LED lighting systems are a sophisticated machine that results in efficient, intentional and direct illumination.
Upgrading to LEDs will not only streamline assembly processes but see substantial improvements in company morale and bottom lines.
This will ensure that through a lighting redesign a factory outproduces its direct competitors, The Lamphouse concludes.
