Survey explores connection between workplace wellbeing and productivity in warehouse sector

A survey of managers and business owners working within the UK warehouse sector aims to establish a firm connection between workplace wellbeing and productivity. 

Undertaken by leading lighting maintenance provider, Greenlite Group, the survey, which will take place during February and March 2019, seeks to establish a link between quality, modern lighting and the health and wellbeing of warehouse staff.

Part of a wider awareness campaign entitled How WELL is Your Warehouse, Greenlite’s WELL Warehouse Survey aims to bring the topic of workplace wellbeing to a wider audience.

With the UK currently lagging behind its European neighbours and the USA in terms of productivity, Greenlite believes it is essential that the warehouse sector explores the ways in which improvements to employee health – both physical and mental – can help to deliver higher productivity and output yields.

Spotlight on lighting 

Key to the campaign is uncovering the real-world views of senior level respondents about the impact that good (and bad) quality warehouse lighting has on personnel. Survey questions, which will can answered anonymously, will ask respondents to comment on whether they believe the working environment that they are responsible for is well lit – and will ask whether they believe the lighting has an impact on concentration levels; alertness; health and safety; and headaches and eye strain.

Respondents will also be asked to comment on whether improvements to warehouse lighting have had any notable impacts on reducing absenteeism, sickness or H&S incidents.

Interestingly, this kind of data is readily available from research projects focused on the commercial office sector – where the positive outcomes of modern lighting are well-documented.

According to Greenlite Group’s Campaign Manager Franki Johnson, the WELL Warehouse survey is well-timed:

“There is mounting evidence that the installation of LED lighting can bring significant benefits to the health, alertness and productivity of warehouse personnel. We believe that there is a strong commercial business case for investing in workplace wellbeing in this sector.  The vital and essential connection between a healthy workforce and one that is productive needs to on the agenda of every business in this industry.

“This initiative is the first stage in our pursuit to uncover whether operatives and managers understand this, and how they feel about the lighting and internal environments in their own workplaces.”

Survey results will be published by Greenlite in March 2019.

Martindale Pro Kits

Stay Safe On Every Job With The New Martindale Pro Kits

New Martindale Electric kits make sure you will never get stuck on-site unable to safely isolate a circuit again. The new VIPDLOKPRO kits include everything you will ever need for safe isolation.

The most comprehensive solution for safe isolation available, the new kits contain the UK’s leading voltage indicator, matching proving device and the new 13 piece LOKKITPRO, all supplied in two convenient soft carry cases. The kits enable safe working and compliance with Health & Safety recommendations when maintaining or installing electrical plant and equipment wherever you are working.  The new kits will be on show at The Electrical Design and Install Expo at the NEC, Birmingham, on 6th-7th September 2017.

The new LOKKITPRO enables safe isolation procedures to be carried out on all types of distribution board in all types of facility and is therefore ideal for contractors and maintenance teams working on industrial and commercial sites. It incorporates the full range of Martindale locking off devices, compatible with all distribution boards and red spot type fuse holders.

It includes the latest LOK7 slimline mcb lock for use on breakers, where the position of the test button may prevent the use of conventional lock outs or access is restricted. It also includes a 1m cable lock device suitable for both electrical and mechanical locking out, as well as a steel hasp for use with multiple padlocks – for when more than one operator is working on the same installation.

There is a plastic body padlock with a 6mm hardened steel shackle for securing the locking devices. Each padlock has a unique safety lockout key with serial number and is supplied with two sets of self-adhesive warning labels indicating ‘DO NOT REMOVE LOCKED OUT’ and ‘PROPERTY OF’ for completion by the end user.

The first variant is the VIPDLOKKITPRO138 and includes a 400V voltage indicator and proving unit. The VIPDLOKKITPRO150 includes a 690V voltage indicator and proving unit rated 1000V CAT IV, making it suitable for all installation categories.

The VI Series of voltage indicators are the safest and simplest solution to proving dead. No ranges, switches or batteries, as they can lead to potentially unreliable voltage readings.  The Martindale voltage indicator and proving unit are supplied in a combination carry case, ensuring both are always at hand when needed. For convenience and to save time, the proving unit can be used without having to remove it from the case.
