Glare & Lighting

Office workersThe concern:

Productivity was reduced and absenteeism was high in an office. Many workers were reporting headaches and sore eyes while working at their computers.


An assessment of the workplace revealed that glare from windows and high illumination levels were making it difficult for workers to read from their LCD computer monitors.

The solution:

• Workstations were re-arranged to reduce direct glare from windows and reflected glare from workstations

• Blinds were fitted to the windows to reduce illumination in the work area.
