How to brighten a room to prevent slips, trips and falls in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk
Although there are no sure-fire ways to prevent all slips, trips and falls in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, and for the most part people need to take a little responsibility for themselves and their own health when it comes to these sorts of accidents, there are things you can do to make them less likely.
If you want to prevent slips, trips and falls in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk within an office building, for example, simply doing something to make the office brighter, and to keep all stairwells and so on more well-lit, could help to reduce the chances of people suffering slips, trips and falls in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk. Here are some ways for you to get your office brighter.
- Have plenty of visible windows. Obviously if you have a smaller office space then there may be space issues. What you should avoid, though, is keeping anything tall in front of a window, and thus blocking out half of the light. It is a much better idea for you to keep everything away from the window, so that as much light as possible can get in.
- Open doors and windows. You can get far more light into the whole space if you leave all of the doors open within the building, or just remove them altogether. An open window can also provide more light in the summer, whilst keeping the room fresh.
- Choose natural light bulbs. There are light bulbs that you can get which provide a more ‘natural’ light to the room, and these are often preferable to fluorescents, which can actually be very uncomfortable to the eyes and make it difficult to see properly anyway.
- Give people their own lamps. In a larger office space, you could provide lamps to individual desks, meaning that people can get even more light whilst they work. so they won’t have to squint over their desks.
