What do we mean by good light? In an ergonomic workplace, light lets you see what you need to see to do your work without straining your eyes even a little. The right light means no annoying glare on your screen, you can read documents properly and don’t get tired eyes from too bright or insufficient light or contrast. Headache, blurred vision, dry and irritated eyes are common symptoms of poor workplace lighting.

Technically, it’s all about how many lux (the measurement unit for light) there is in the workspace. Research shows that 1000 lux can enhance productivity, while 500-1000 lux is seen as the ‘stress-free zone’ conducive to a truly ergonomic workplace.
