||These regulations (effective: 1 Jan. 1986) apply to CRT display terminals, but do not cover oscilloscopes, measuring instruments, typewriters or calculating machines with luminous displays. They specify that the screen should provide good legibility, that the workstation should be laid out so as to avoid any reflection, and that the working-surface height should be adjustable to obtain an optimal angle of vision. The workstation should be designed so as to exclude strained postures and motions. Any person working more than one hour during a working day at a VDU should undergo a vision test. Employees suffering from eye-strain should be given the opportunity to alternate with other less strenuous tasks. Work with VDUs involving monotonous routines should be avoided. Detailed commentaries. (An English translation is available from Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, Stockholm).
