(Indoor) Surveys

Improper lighting can affect quality of work, present safety hazards and may lead to eye strain, headache and discomfort. Ohio State University offices, classrooms, laboratories and general use areas are designed to meet certain illumination criteria. As space usage changes or personal limitations are presented, it may be necessary to evaluate lighting to ensure it is appropriate for the task(s) performed or for the individuals using the space. Utilizing light meters, EHS can perform light measurements to determine if lighting is adequate for the affected areas and individuals.
