Objectives: Specifications and standards for lighting installations in occupational settings are based on the spectral sensitivity of the classical visual system and do not take into account the recently discovered sensitivity of workers to blue light. The authors investigated the effects of exposure to blue-enriched white light during daytime workhours in an office setting.
Conclusions: Exposure to blue-enriched white light during daytime workhours improves subjective alertness, performance, and evening fatigue.
