Making sure the area in which we’re working is well lit is a crucial part of health and safety. The quicker and clearer we can see a hazard, the more easily we can avoid it.
The type and amount of lighting you will need for a safe operation will vary, depending on the type of work being carried out and the potential hazards involved.
Typical lighting requirements differ for different types of work. We have uploaded a number of good practice or guidance notes.
