Health & Performance Overview

This chapter is concerned with the effects of lighting on task performance and human health. Lighting can influence task performance by changing visibility, modifying behavior, influencing mood and adjusting the circadian cycle. Exposure to light can affect health through the changes it produces in the visual and circadian systems or simply as optical radiation. Together, people’s state of health and their ability to perform tasks can affect their productivity and the productivity of the organizations they work for. All these impacts of lighting are discussed here.
