§ 25 Lighting

The lighting shall be such that the working environment and safety are ensured during work, travel and restitution.
If possible, daylight and a view shall be provided in work rooms and public rooms.
Section last changed: 01 January 2011

Lighting can be artificial daylight, daylight or direct sunlight. The lighting should be particularly good and correct in the control room, cabins and other rooms where sight-intensive work takes place, where display screen equipment is used regularly and where the work requires good visibility during various weather conditions.
In order to fulfil the requirement relating to lighting, the NORSOK S-002 standard Chapter 7.6 og 8.2 should be used. There should also be specific lighting if the general lighting is not adequate for readings, service and maintenance.
The Norwegian Shipowners' Association Norm for physical-chemical working environment on mobile facilities built before 1 August 1995 and operating on the Norwegian shelf (in Norwegian only) can be used as an alternative to NORSOK S-002 for the areas covered by the norm.
