Human Factors: Lighting, Thermal Comfort, Working Space, Noise and Vibration

The work environment can impact on a person’s performance in a number of different ways from effects that damage health (heat stress, musculoskeletal disorders); effects that reduce the individual’s ability to perform a task (poor lighting, distraction); to effects that cause dissatisfaction, resistance to change and uncooperative attitudes

Citadel is providing Testing and Measurement of these items:

Lighting: At its simplest, different levels of lighting are required for different types of work – close, accurate work such as soldering a control panel will require higher light levels than walking down a corridor. However, when considering lighting, a number of different factors need to be considered such as color, contrast, glare and so on.

Thermal Comfort: Extremes of temperature (very cold and very hot) can put physiological stress on an individual. Lack of control of the temperature of a workplace (e.g. in an open plan office)
can lead to job dissatisfaction and increased incidence of stress and long term sickness
absence.

Working Space: Work rooms should have enough free space to allow people to move about with ease.

Noise: When assessing a task, employers should also consider whether noise might interfere with safety-critical communications. In addition, exposure to high levels of noise can increase individual experience of stress, as may even relatively low noise levels if significantly above background/ambient and if experienced over long periods.

Vibration: Whole body vibration (such as experienced in vehicle cabs) can contribute to lower back pain and fatigue. Some frequencies of vibration can have a negative effect on visual performance.
