Reduce the possibility of accidents and crime following the clock changes.

With the clocks having gone back last weekend, you’ll have notice already how the dark evening are coming in. It’s now that you need to prepare for not only your homes but for those of you in business, your office environment and staffs welfare.

Check lighting – make sure external lighting is adequate for making walkways and stair treads on external stairways fully visible. Not only to eliminate trip hazards but also for a sense of security.

Buildings that are in darkness can be prime targets for thieves, so reduce the risk with lighting that illuminate anything that moves close to your property. Make sure that doorways and entrances are well-lit, for extra protection.

As soon as the clocks go back, it seems instinctive to prepare ourselves for hibernation at home but for employees, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) a type of winter depression, can affect many people. It is often the case that most of us leave for work and return home in the dark and if the weathers bad, lunchtime walks are abandoned.

Simple ways to improve moods and in turn productivity during these winter months is to increase, where possible natural light. As this is difficult in most work environments, consider fitting ‘daylight’ lamps to ‘simulate’ natural lighting which will trigger brain activity, making staff feel more energetic and alert. Helping to improve the mood, avoid the “afternoon dip” and winter blues and in general boost the atmosphere in the workplace.
