Title Lighting conditions and workplace dimensions of VDU-operators
Bibliographic information Dec. 1982, Vol.25, No.12, p.1165-1173. Illus. 10 ref.
Abstract Lighting conditions were evaluated at ergonomically-designed visual display unit workstations in use during day and night shifts by 26 female and 2 male operators at a telephone information centre. The operators preferred much lower luminance and workplace illuminance than previously reported in the literature. Large interindividual differences in screen and workplace lighting adjustment were found.
