Lighting of Workplaces and Health Risks
Lighting at workplaces might be insufficient or the workplaces might be over-lighted. If the lighting is not proper the accidents and occupational diseases can occur. The aim is to connect the level of hazards in the work environment and health risks. The aim will be gained through risk assessment at workplace that contains the measurements, listening to the workers’ opinion and scientific medical investigations in the field of influence of lighting to human health (eye-sight worsening, fatigue, headache, errors in work methods causing accidents etc.). Glare and flickering are investigated in a mechanical company. The risk of health impairment in workplaces was assessed: 1) justified if all the criteria (illuminance, uniformity, no glare observed) presented in the model were satisfied; 2) unjustified (due to its low illuminance value) and 3) inadmissible (due to workplaces’ low illuminance and colour rendering index values and occurrence of mild flicker). Ill. 2, bibl. 15 (In English; summaries in English, Russian and Lithuanian).
