Have you ever suffered headaches and eye strain in a workplace due to low levels of light while reading? Were there areas posing a risk of tripping because you could not see the hazards?
This is a common occurrence and many employers are diligent in correcting more apparent issues but tend to forget lighting. Under Federal OH&S laws, there are specific requirements for the level of lighting that must be provided in a workplace. If you think that you may have an issue pertaining to this, please feel free to contact us for a free consult.
