Resumen A 1975 Swedish government study showed that 51% of iron and steel workers believed the workplace illumination to be unacceptable. The following problems exist: luminous radiation from furnaces and molten metal; low contrast of moulds and cast iron; shadowing of light by workers' bodies; repetitive visual tasks and short viewing distances; smoke and dust; breaking of lamps owing to vibration; glare; limited colour rendering. This study showed only partial improvement achieved by illuminating engineering. Improved shielding of light sources is required, but changes in work processes are more necessary.
