Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Lighting for Health & Wellbeing newsletter for May 15, 2023. As I teased out in last month’s edition, circadian lighting scientist Dr. Martin Moore-Ede has contributed an article to our April/May magazine that outlines where the lighting industry should begin to develop a strategy for implementing circadian lighting best practices…before regulatory authorities take matters into their own hands. Moore-Ede leans on experience in advising the American Petroleum Institute to develop a standard for fatigue risk management systems backed by circadian science, involving a task force of industry representatives and stakeholders to ensure practical solutions and realistic policies could be upheld. He advocates a similar process for the lighting industry so expert findings are applied to lighting product development, design, and practice to limit future liability.

In this newsletter, we also include content that encourages greater product transparency and end-of-life practices, as well as how biophilic principles influenced one firm’s facility design. Finally, our team is looking forward to seeing many of you next week at LightFair, where you’ll find us asking: How are environmental and health concerns or initiatives making their way into your internal firm culture, business practices, and products or services? What makes good sense for your success as well as your customers?

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
