Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The author is undoubtedly an expert in this area. This is the sort of text to use as a reference...a useful addition to the library of those involved in or planning significant work in the lighting field.'
Health and Safety at Work. Sept. 2000

'Lighting for Health and Safety would be a useful book for practitioners to have to hand but that list (listing typical maintained illuminance values for a range of activities, across spectrum of industry) could be regarded as making it essential', Health and Safety Review, Oct. 2000

'This is the first comprehensive book I have seen covering the fundamentals of vision and lighting....Easy to read and understand.....I would recommend the book in particular to occupational health and hygiene staff', Kit Artus, chairwoman, RCN Society of Occupational Health Nursing, in Occupational Health, Oct. 2000

'Those studying at diploma level and beyond will find this an excellent source of material on lighting in the workplace.'
Safety & Health Practitioner, January 2001

"Dr. Smith has produced a handy primer that covers a wide range of lighting issues in a logical and easily accessible manner. Those concerned with the influence of lighting on health and safety will find many useful reminders on the theroy and practice of indoor and external lighting."

David Asker-Browne, O' heal (Occupational Health & Environmental Assessments Ltd)
A guide to the fundamental of vision and lighting for workplace safety. Highlighting potential problems that can develop as a consequence of poor illumination, it recommends solutions that bring practitioners into compliance with United Kingdom safety regulations. The discussion begins with basic physical and biological information and moves through a treatment of how lighting effects such things as posture, vision, and awareness of workplace dangers. Although the legislation discussed is British, the majority of the information could be applied to U.S. workplaces. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
