Abstract
Proceedings of a NIOSH conducted symposium pertaining to reduced levels of illumination that might be required by the long range energy conservation program. The primary objectives of the symposium were to ascertain the current level of knowledge of safety and health associated with low levels of illumination, to identify areas where research is needed, and to create an awareness of these areas for future research. The main topics discussed were: the Federal Energy Administration's lighting energy conservation program; the General Services Administration's approach to energy conservation in lighting; illumination levels in the United Kingdom; the Illuminating Engineering Research Institute and illumination levels currently being recommended in the United States; lighting and health hazards; lighting, performance and age variations; occular discomfort and other symptoms of eyestrain at low illumination levels; visual dysfunction; individual differences in contrast sensitivity; illumination levels and safety; and the lighting needs of the worker.
