Facts on good advice on work lighting

Good lighting makes working a lot easier. But it can be hard to work by artificial light as it may cause shadows or dazzle you. So here is some good advice on lighting:

  • Deep shadows can be avoided by using more lamps
  • If the light is dazzling, it is fitted incorrectly
  • There should always be light from two sides
  • Light intensity is measured in lux
  • The older a light source is, the less light it gives off
  • Place plugs close to the entrance
  • Keep fittings clean and in good condition
  • Cordon off rooms which do not have sufficient lighting
