Illumination measurements are carried out to determine whether the working environment has sufficient illumination intensity in accordance with the characteristics of the work performed in the enterprise. These measurements should be done periodically in order to control the risks in the workplace.
If possible, lighting should be done with daylight, that is, natural lighting. Artificial lighting should be provided in working environments where daylight is not sufficient or where night work is performed. Artificial lighting is provided by electricity and can be direct lighting, indirect lighting or semi-direct lighting. However, in all cases, the lights should be distributed homogeneously in the environment.
The relevant legal regulations contain the lowest levels of illumination required in the work environment. The values obtained in the measurements to be made should be between the highest and lowest limits shown in the standards. Businesses must provide correct lighting for employees, depending on the sector in which they operate and the working conditions. Lighting level is a factor that affects both the performance of the employees and the activities of the company.
Lighting level measurements made by various laboratories are performed by qualified electrical engineers, electrical technicians and high technicians.
