The Benefits of Re-Lamping
Health and Safety Obligations
To ensure workplace safety, appropriate level of lighting is a legal responsibility for all public, industrial and commercial buildings. Just because your lamps haven't blown doesn't mean that they don't need to be replaced. A fluorescent lamp will produce around 30% less light after 2 years while a sodium lamp will produce 50% less light all while consuming the same amount of power! As well as a health and safety risk this will also impact productivity levels.
Regular re-lamping is essential for reducing the risk of accidents in the workplace, resulting in a liability free environment for the employer. Health and Safety inspectors will routinely test for the correct lighting levels so it is imperative that a re-lamping schedule is strictly observed.
|Lamp Light||Guideline to maximum re-lamping period to comply with legal obligations|
|Fluorescent||1.5 - 2 years|
|Sodium||1.5 - 2 years|
|Metal Halide||2 year|
