The recommended lux level for freight yard lighting depends on the activities taking place and the specific requirements of the yard. Generally, a minimum of 50 lux is required for the safe movement and operation of vehicles and equipment. However, in areas where workers are loading and unloading cargo, higher lighting levels may be necessary to ensure that workers can perform their tasks safely and efficiently.
For example, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recommends a minimum of 150 lux for visual tasks such as loading and unloading cargo from vehicles. In some cases, higher levels may be necessary depending on the complexity of the tasks and the level of detail required.
It's important to note that the recommended lux level can vary depending on the size of the area being illuminated, the type of lighting used, and other factors. It's best to consult with a lighting professional to determine the appropriate lux level for your specific freight yard lighting.
