Task Lighting and Magnifier Needs Assessment

The assessment of the need for task lighting and illuminated magnifiers considers factors in three major areas:

  1. What task or tasks are being performed?
  2. What are the environmental conditions in which the tasks are performed?
  3. Who is performing the tasks?

For workstation environments, OSHA recommends placing lighting in the appropriate place and selecting the right level of illumination to enhance one's ability to see monitor images. Task lighting can often help in this area by adequately lighting areas for reading and writing while limiting brightness around computer monitors.
