1. Scope

1.1 This Standard provides specific design criteria for illumination systems in various locations within a health care facility. Note: Lighting is both an art and a science. The basic technical criteria given in this Standard are not intended to inhibit creative design, but rather to ensure that minimum requirements are met.

1.2 This Standard deals with (a) illumination sources; (b) luminaires; (c) illumination levels (see Tables 1, 2, and 3); and (d) guidelines for specific areas and tasks.

1.3 This Standard does not deal with (a) therapeutic illumination devices (eg, phototherapy lamps); and (b) special purpose devices such as UV sources for sterilization.

1.4 This Standard addresses requirements for illumination systems. However, it is not meant to remove the need for consultation wi th users regarding specific or unusual requirements.

1.5 The requirements in this Standard are intended to be subordinate to applicable Provincial, Federal, or local regulatory authorities.

1.6 In this Standard, "shall" indicates a mandatory requirement; "should" indicates a recommendation, or that which is advised but not mandatory. Notes accompanying clauses do not include mandatory or alternative requirements. The purpose of a Note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material that is not properly a part of the Standard. Notes to figures and tables are considered to be part of the figure or table and are written as mandatory requirements.
