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.

Analysis:

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.
