Light measurement in the context of occupational health and safety (OSH) refers to the assessment of the quantity and quality of lighting in the workplace in order to ensure appropriate viewing conditions and minimize the risk of accidents related to the lack of proper lighting. Legal Requirements: There are laws and standards for workplace lighting. These regulations specify the minimum requirements for light intensity, uniformity of light distribution
Safety and comfort: Proper lighting is essential for a safe working environment. The lack of proper lighting can lead to various hazards, such as falling, tripping, incorrect operation of machinery, errors in work or injuries due to not noticing dangerous substances or objects. In addition, improper lighting can cause eye strain, increase the risk of accidents and negatively affect the comfort and productivity of employees.
Light intensity measurement: Occupational health and safety measurement is the precise measurement of the amount of light in different areas of the workplace. Special devices are used, such as the luxmeter, which measure the amount of light in lux units. This measurement allows you to assess whether the light intensity meets the specified standards and health and safety requirements.
Light measurement in the context of occupational health and safety is of key importance for ensuring safe working conditions and minimizing the risk of accidents.
