Upgrading to Modern Industrial LED Lighting Improves Plant Safety & Saves Money

Safety is the number one priority in facilities across all segments of the manufacturing industry. Every year, companies invest millions of dollars in equipment upgrades and safety programmes aimed at preventing injuries and lost time accidents by increasing awareness of risks and incentivising safe work practices.

Yet still, an average of over 477,000 injuries and 328 fatalities occur in manufacturing plants across the US each year. These incidents not only have a devastating impact on employees and their families, but also on the company’s reputation, recruiting/hiring efforts and profitability. In fact, workplace injuries and deaths have cost US manufacturers 170.4 billion USD over the last 10 years.

Aiming to improve plant safety, many companies have found that upgrading facility lighting to modern, high-efficiency industrial LED fixtures can have a major impact on lowering the risk and incidents of workplace accidents. Here’s how state-of-the-art LED lighting can improve safety:

  • A brighter work environment improves visibility. Poor visibility is the leading cause of slip, trip and fall hazards and contact with moving objects – some of the biggest risks
    in any facility. With so many distractions, like excessive noise that forces workers to rely on visual information, it’s hard to keep an eye out for these kinds of risks. Adding to = the problem, conventional high- pressure sodium fixtures create a dark, drab atmosphere that makes it difficult for workers to spot hazards around them. LED fixtures, on the other hand, produce bright, white, uniform light that improves visibility, helps workers spot hazards and stay out of harm’s way.
  • LEDs can combat fatigue and improve alertness. Fatigue is a major risk for workers, especially those who work night shifts or a rotating schedule.
