Workplace Lighting Surveys

workplace lighting surveys

MEC carry out workplace lighting surveys which is the measurement and assessment of lighting in the workplace using light meters and the use of British Standards and the Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) lighting guides.


Lighting at work is required for the purposes of safety, health and the efficiency of work. Poor lighting increases fatigue and the risk of accidents, and is also linked to Sick Building Syndrome.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, require employees to have arrangements in place to cover health and safety. This includes lighting which needs to be suitable and adequate to meet the requirements of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.

Our workplace lighting assessments will inform you where actions should be taken to remove, reduce or control risks to health and safety caused by poor lighting.
