Abstract Literature survey on the physiological and psychological effects of interior lighting by fluorescent tubes with light having different spectral compositions. Based on objective indices of the effect of the visible part of the spectrum on visual function and health, and subjective assessment of the effects of light and colour, a classification of visual tasks is presented with the most appropriate light source for their execution. Workplaces are classified as: those in which colour perception is very important; those in which work involves colourless objects; those in which the visual task involves perception of a scene and people.
