Lighting, Thermal Comfort, Working Space, Noise and Vibration
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
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.
