The question came up recently at our laboratory; Are there any specific regulations regarding required or even recommended light intensities in foot candles for analytical labs?
The only thing I could come up with at the moment was in the Handbook of Chemical Health and Safety by Robert J. Alaimo. It recommended that the light intensity at the bench for typical chemistry labs to range between 80-100 foot candles.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
