Description

This Standard sets out requirements, general principles and recommendations for the permanent lighting of exterior workplaces. It applies to exteriors in which specific visual tasks are undertaken. It applies only when this area is being used as a workplace. 

The provisions have the object of producing a visual environment in which essential task details are made easy to see and adverse factors that may cause visual discomfort are either excluded or appropriately controlled.

Scope
