Industrial Lighting project

Project Description

BLACKPOOL TRANSPORT SERVICES – Industrial Lighting completely changed the working environment

 RICOMAN supplied lighting to Eco Lighting Specialists for a project with Blackpool Transport Services. 

“…the difference was like night and day. We switched them on and suddenly it felt like we had daylight in the workshop.”
Chris, the Head of Safety and Facilities for the company who manages Blackpool’s buses and trams understands the importance of optimal working conditions for the mechanics.  “Now we have LED, both the working environment is safer and productivity has improved because the engineers can see everything so clearly. It also reduces worker fatigue. We’ve fitted LED throughout the workshop, even inside the walls of the inspection pits. Before the mechanics had to hold lamps under the engine. Now they can use both hands on a repair without loss of light.”

“Wherever LED has been installed, it’s lifted the mood of the staff,” Chris added.

In addition to the benefits to the employees the introduction of RICOMAN luminaires also has had a huge impact on the economically with many financial savings. An independent survey verified a projected 67% saving on energy charges as well. On top of the savings on running costs Chris has calculated he will also save £900 a year on recycling costs as he will no longer have to pay for the disposal of old or failed fluorescent tubes in compliance with the WEEE (Waste and Electronic Equipment) regulations.

The project completed with Chris, his employees and Eco Lighting Specialists being overjoyed with the result.

Chris is Head of Safety and Facilities for the company that runs Blackpool’s buses and trams. He knows how important it is for his mechanics to have good working conditions.
