What the factors should be considered in relation to office lighting when positioning workstations.

  • Screen should be placed so that direction of viewing is parallel to windows to reduce effects of contrast between screen and windows or their reflections.
  • Direction of viewing should be parallel to fluorescent light fittings to reduce the effect of reflection on screens.
  • Light levels should be set appropriately for screen reading but this will be a compromise if hard copies also have to be read.
