||Effect of VDT workstation lighting conditions on operator visual workload
||Mar. 2008, Vol.46, No.2, p.105-111. Illus. 28 ref.
||This study investigated the effects of illumination on visual workload in visual display terminal (VDT) workstation tasks. Ten volunteer students performed VDT signal detection tasks under four light colors (red, blue, green and white) and two ambient illumination levels (20 lux and 340 lux). The dependent variables were the change of critical fusion frequency (CFF), visual acuity, reaction time, error rates and subjective visual comfort. Results showed that both visual acuity and subjective visual fatigue were significantly affected by the color of light. The illumination had significant effect on CFF thresholds and reaction times. Subjects prefer to perform VDT task under blue and white lights than green and red. Implications of these findings are discussed.
