The Health Benefits of LED lighting

Your company has many choices when it comes to lighting. It's a well-known fact that LED lighting options have distinct advantages such as a lower environmental impact and longer lifespans than traditional lighting. One concern many people have had in the past, is the cost of LED Lighting. Fortunately, the overall cost has gone down and the money you will save on energy bills will make it well worth it.
Another area where LED lighting excels, is in the benefits it provides to the health of employees and customers. Discover some of the top ways better lighting improves health.
  • Reduction of Light Sensitivity. Fluorescent lighting has been linked to a number of health issues such as migraines and epilepsy. LED lighting, on the other hand, reduces or eliminates many cases of eye strain. LEDs do not emit infrared light so they are less likely to cause headaches, fatigue, and nausea.
  • Higher Light Quality. Because LEDs emit better color accuracy (providing a color rendering index of 90 or better), as well as consistent light traits, they produce less glare than other forms of lighting. This results in appealing light in the work area that delivers wide dispersion, soft shadows and no dark spots.
  • Improved Concentration. You have probably seen studies about beneficial effect natural light has on mental well-being. Unfortunately, you can’t rely solely on natural light to keep your facility lit, but LED lighting is the next best thing. Such areas as mood, concentration, motivation, energy, and productivity are enhanced by natural and LED lighting.
  • Improved Balance of Circadian Rhythms. Since LEDs mimic natural light, proper installation and timing of the lights can be beneficial to employees, especially if they are working outside traditional work hours. This type of lightning has been shown to improve melatonin levels.
  • Enhanced Customization. LEDs allow for a number of personal adjustments in the workplace. One example is the ability to adjust color temperature, allowing users to select for brightness and comfort.
