The importance of safe workspace lighting for the nightshift

3

Safe workspace lighting is crucial for everyone involved: companies, organisations and their employees. Organisations need proper, safe lighting to optimize labour efficiency, protect workers from unnecessary accidents and protect goods and assets from damage or theft. Employees need proper lighting so that they can work safely and efficiently in an acceptable work environment.

To safeguard the wellbeing of employees and conditions of goods, it is crucial to provide safe lighting that reaches all workspace areas. National regulations enforce laws regarding proper , safe lighting such as the U.K.’s Regulation 8 of the Workplace or the Dutch Article 6.3 of the Labour Law.  Everyone wants to realize a workspace that is a nice place to work and part of the solution is complete, safe and healthy lighting that reaches the needed areas.

In order to:

  • Protect employees from accidents
  • Increase efficiency and improve processes
  • Protect assets and goods from unnecessary damage and loss of value
  • Protect terrains and areas from trespassers or theft

Safe lighting is especially important for workspaces with moving vehicles, such as transport and logistics, due to the risks of accidents with large vehicles such as trains and trucks. The international organisation Health and Safety International had this to say:

 

“All roads, maneuvering areas and vehicle yards must be sufficiently lit. Adequate lighting should be provided to all areas where vehicle movements take place, especially to those areas used in darker hours. Particular attention should be paid in areas where loading/unloading takes place.”

It is a given that for efficient and effective work, employees must be able to see everything. This means complete lighting of all work spaces, with special attention for potentially hazardous zones. Besides making any space a nice place to work, effective lighting results in better working conditions as employees don’t have to carry addition gear such as flashlights. This in turn helps improve workflows and efficiency. Furthermore, safe lighting that reaches the needed places reduces the chance for accidents and resulting injuries. Proper lighting significantly reduces the risks associated with nighttime work. Health is also an important factor: overly bright lights without shielding and traditional, older lighting methods can be blinding, increasing feelings of discomfort and the risk of accidents. Especially in transport and logistics settings this can lead to serious risks that can be easily prevented.
