Productivity At Work.
Your productivity at your workspace can be enhanced or diminished by the amount and type of illumination( light-source) available at your work space.
We all know we only have 2 major sources of illumination – the natural (sunlight) and the artificial (Fluorescent, halogen bulbs, LEDs). The type and brightness of light during work can actually affect the pace at which we work which in turn affects our productivity especially in a workplace where computers are used often. Therefore, it is important to have an accurate source of illumination to relieve the brightness of the computer screen and its effect on the eyes.
EFFECTS OF BRIGHTNESS OF LIGHT ON THE EYES.
Dim artificial light ( Low brightness): This may cause unnecessary strain on the eyes, which can lead to blurry vision and some bit of discomfort including headaches over a period of time.
Bright artificial light ( High intensity ): This may cause you to experience headaches, bright lights have been reported to be a major cause of migraines in people that work where bright light is concentrated.
Natural Light: This is the best type of light for a workspace, Direct light from the sun can reduce the rate at which workers get headaches, and it can even reduce stress and drowsiness in workers, also sunlight is a vital source of vitamin D, which helps us maintain balanced micro nutrients concentration such as calcium in the body.
As much as brightness and type light has effect on productivity, your sitting position and placement of computer screen from your eyes also plays a major role in your work productivity as wrongly placed screen may cause neck aches, difficulty seeing prints for presbyopic age groups and back aches.
Therefore, to increase your productivity at work, it is necessary to create a balance in the type and brightness of light used at work place, try to get an adequate illumination from sunlight and moderate artificial light.
