CIS 74-115 Hultgren G.V., Knave B.
Discomfort glare and disturbances from light reflection in an office environment with CRT display terminals
Kontrastbländning och reflexstörningar i kontorslandskap med bildterminaler [in Swedish]
The authors studied the lighting of an office equipped with 17 CRT display terminals and analysed complaints from the staff. Discomfort glare and reflections on the terminal screens were found to be the main causes of the complaints. Discomfort glare resulted from difference in luminance between the dark screen and other lit surfaces in the room. Reflections from windows and ceiling lighting appearing on the glossy screen were often found to have higher luminance values than the text on the screen. On the basis of these results, guiding principles are suggested for the design of lighting in similar workplaces.

Commuter travel and sickness absence of London office workers
The relationship between the pattern of commuter travel to work and sickness absence was studied in a population of 1984 office workers in central London. The median journey time was 1h; the average journey had 2.8 stages. One third of the sample considered their journey uncomfortable. The number of journey stages was the most important factor relating to both certified and uncertified sickness. The use of a car or a journey lasting >1.5h was associated with higher uncertified rates of absence. The incidence of certified influenza did not relate to any specific aspect of the journey, including the use of public transport.
