The office is a necessity for many people to get work done. It provides a space where you can focus and collaborate with other like-minded coworkers. However, there are some health risks involved with certain office settings, according to Medical Express. David Ellis explores sitting and lighting in his recent article “Sitting and office lighting among work risks.” According to Ellis, “researchers at the University of Adelaide say office workers need to move more and sit less, and use warm-coloured lighting instead of blue-rich LEDs to help avoid some serious potential health risks.” Health is a very important thing to take into account when planning your office design. Experts at Office Space Planners are here to help you tackle this and many other office issues.
According to Ellis, long hours sitting can counteract regular physical activity. Those long hours are associate with cardiovascular disease, diabetes and fatigue. In addition, researchers found that “’blue light’ or ‘blue-rich’ white LED light sources can damage the retina with long-term exposure.” They suggest warm lighting, such as red, green, and even cool blue, because they’re more comfortable for reading and are safer for workers’ eyes.
