||Results of a survey and measurements made in 4 Swedish foundries to determine the optimum parameters for new lighting installations. The visible radiation from furnaces and molten metal raises problems of adaptation of workers' eyes to work environmental lighting conditions. Visual tasks are rendered more difficult by the lack of sharp contrast between casting sand moulds and the cast iron. Visibility is further reduced by insufficient lighting shadows, low contrast, and wearing of protective goggles. Recommendations on ways to improve lighting by using mercury-vapour lamps; cost aspects.
