Watch the web forum debate about office lighting for an aging workforce

 

 

  • European standard for office lighting is antiquated and needs reviewing
Aging friendly office lighting

  • A 50+ worker needs twice as much light of someone in their 20s for everyday tasks

 

  • New technology is available to allow office workers to personalize their lighting

 

The one-light-for-all principle is outdated at a time when we are all living and working longer. Today 25% of people in work are over 50 years old and office lighting needs a serious rethink at a policy level. The current European standard for writing, typing, reading and data-processing in offices is a minimum of 500 lux, but Philips has gathered research to show this is not sufficient for at least quarter of today’s global workforce.

 

Industry experts Bianca van der Zande, Valerie Fletcher and Patricia Rizzo debate about the need for personalized lighting at workplaces.
