Bibliographic information Jan. 1978, No.1, p.14-15. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract Report of a comparative study of 2 variants of workplace for inspecting shiny fabrics: in one, fluorescent tubes for local lighting (h=1.6m) were arranged vertically above the workplace in the direction of the fabric; in the other, the light fixtures were at the right of the operators, at right angles to the workplace. The second arrangement produced no glare and thus facilitated the work. Productivity was 27% higher than with the first variant, with no increase in visual fatigue.
