Assessment of Illumination

Good lighting is an important aspect of a productive, healthy and safe work environment. It provides an environment where employees can work comfortably and efficiently. Employees can only be in a position to read clearly labels and safety instructions, e.g., those on chemical containers, if there is adequate illumination.

It is for these reasons that workplaces should be provided with adequate illumination in workplaces. The assessment of lighting will determine if illumination is suitable and sufficient in a workplace. The assessment includes conducting day and night time illumination surveys. Emergency illumination installations are tested and recommendations on workplace illumination are made.
