||Advantages and disadvantages of intensive lighting for office work
||Vor- und Nachteile intensiver Beleuchtung am Büroarbeitsplatz [in German]|
||2002, Special issue, p.269-274. Illus.
||It has been shown that lighting has an effect on the human body. During office work, lighting can have both positive and negative effects. This article discusses the advantages and disadvantages of intensive lighting with respect to visual performance, stimulation and workers' well-being. An increase in lighting intensity is advisable for certain complex visual tasks as well as for older workers. However, workplace problems often have several causes; consequently, lighting optimization should not preclude employers from carrying out a full ergonomic analysis of the workstation.
