The “invention” of the assembly line was a breakthrough for the Industrial Revolution. Productivity soared and a new way of doing business prevailed. Among other advantages, it enabled employees to specialize and perfect a specific task. Effective lighting for an assembly environment can positively affect employees by boosting productivity, morale and well-being. Providing clear lighting without shadows or glare is also important as a safety issue. Performing a task consistently throughout the day can easily become redundant. Good lighting will help keep employees alert and aware of their surroundings.
