How are task lights ergonomic?
Next time you’re reading something printed, notice the position you are standing or sitting in as you read it. Do you move to get better lighting? Do you position your body in a way to help improve the visual contrast of the text, reduce glare or avoid a shadow? That very movement is the essence of ergonomics.
How can task lights reduce operating costs?
According to the US Department of Energy, 51% of the energy used in commercial buildings is consumed by lighting systems. However, many existing systems have much higher than recommended illumination levels from overhead lighting. In instances where too much illumination is provided through overhead lighting, companies can reduce their power usage and associated costs by simply reducing overhead light levels and applying proper lighting for specific tasks.
