The ILP BS5489 Good Practice course has been developed for those involved in road lighting design and policy makers. This course investigates the latest British Standards for road lighting and how they are applied. Primarily based around British Standards, these principles are transferrable to designers of other Standards.
The course is not about computer aided lighting design; it describes how to identify the road user groups, their needs and the complexity of the visual task. British and European lighting standards requirements indicate a base lighting class position from which a risk assessment is carried out. After this, adjustments are made to increase or decrease the lighting class to match road user requirements. The course takes you through the is process, to determine the lighting class, the risk assessment considerations, ways to reduce obtrusive light, glare and ways to minimise the environmental impact.
An Essential Course For:
· Designers of lighting schemes
· Managers with responsibility for lighting design
· Policy makers
· Newcomers to lighting design and those that need to update their skills to the latest thinking.
This course is suitable for participants with all levels of experience and prior training, whether you need a refresher, want the latest on the changes to BS5489-1 and those looking for an appreciation of basic road lighting standards.
