Good warehouse lighting maintenance is important for the safety and well-being of employees working in the warehouse. Good lighting allows workers to spot oncoming vehicles, pedestrians, slippery floors, and other hazards that could cause accidents if lighting is bad.
Hadley Sign Solutions has a complete light maintenance division that can keep the lighting in your warehouse in tip-top shape. We can maintain the lighting at the loading dock, shipping and receiving areas, open storage areas, rack storage areas, and even parking lots.
There are three types of lighting commonly found in warehouses: Fluorescent (white); Metal Halides (bluish white); High Pressure Sodium (emits amber/golden light). Whatever type of lighting used, we can maintain it.
Poor lighting such as too little light or actually too much light can contribute to poor work quality by employees. Nothing is worse for the eyes while working an assembly line than flickering lights. Preventive maintenance on any lighting system will help to reduce eye fatigue, headaches due to eye strain, overall fatigue, lessen the possibility for errors and hopefully help to increase employee production.
In general, lighting is important in the work environment for the following reasons:
- Efficient and accurate performance of visual tasks; 80% of information about surroundings is processed through the eyes
- Worker safety and health
- Capital expense and maintenance costs
- General feeling of well-being
Warehouse Lighting Maintenance Programs
A comprehensive lighting maintenance program should be instituted and carried out on a regular basis to address illumination levels, and the repair and replacement of lamps and components. It may be more cost efficient for you to outsource these services.
