Title Lighting in the logging and sawmill industries
Bibliographic information Jan. 1977, Vol.6, No.2, p.67-79. Illus. 9 ref.
Abstract This report contains recommendations for good lighting practice; the desired end results are given rather than specific means of achieving them. After a brief introduction on logging and sawmill operations, survey findings and recommendations are broken down into short chapters: scope of the guide; material flow (sorting, etc.); visibility requirements for specific tasks; illumination level recommendations (quality and quantity); safety considerations; lighting maintenance; energy conservation; emergency lighting. Appendices contain visual task evaluations of typical tasks and relative efficacies of light sources. This document should be used in conjunction with the "American national standard practice for industrial lighting", published in Journal of the Illuminating Engineering Society, Vol.2, No.4, July 1973, p.461 (CIS 74-1015).
