Abstract In France, more than 210,000 workers are exposed to artificial optical radiation, among whom 25% for more than 20h per week, despite the fact that its health effects remain largely unknown. This collection of articles on artificial optical radiation addresses the issues of exposure evaluation, health hazards, preventive measures, and French and European regulations.
