CIRCADIAN Light’s first HSW course offering, “Circadian Lighting for Workplaces: Protecting Health and Improving Productivity.” will educate architects and lighting designers on circadian lighting and the key differences between the day, evening, and nighttime impacts of the bioactive blue content on circadian rhythms, human health, and productivity.
The course will educate architects and lighting designers on:
- The science and impact of blue light during the day and night on human health and performance
- New standards for light at night, including UL verification for having less the 2% blue content at night, and its implication on color tuning products
- Specifications for spectral content of lighting by time of day that have emerged from evidence based medical research
- Research of human subjects utilizing spectrally engineered light that regulates the amount of blue light by time, location and season to entrain circadian rhythms, protect human health and boost productivity

About CIRCADIAN Light
CIRCADIAN Light is focused on the development and commercialization of innovative evidence-based LED lights that minimize circadian disruption to promote health, safety and productivity. Using spectral engineering based on medical research at the University of Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital, and in Boston at the CIRCADIAN Light Medical Research Center, the CIRCADIAN research and development team led by Dr. Martin Moore-Ede has produced a proprietary suite of LED products. CIRCADIAN Lights have been installed in multiple leading Fortune 500 companies to reduce circadian disruption in employees and minimize the adverse health risks of exposure to blue light at night, with a resulting reduction in workforce costs including absenteeism, turnover and lost productivity.
