ILP to provide training on new road lighting standard

The Institution of Lighting Professionals is to provide training on the new and comprehensively updated standard on road lighting, BS 5489 Part 1.

A CPD seminar will inform lighting professionals of the changes in the document. The standard, which was published on 31 December 2012, provides guidance on all aspects of the design of road and public amenity lighting, including passive safety, sustainability, variable lighting, scotopic and photopic ratios and risk assessments. This educational seminar also includes the draft proposals for EN13201, conflict areas and the latest research on mesopic vision and what action lighting professionals must take.

It will cover the draft proposed changes, environmental considerations, energy considerations, design strategy and lighting classification, risk assessment, variable lighting for subsidiary roads and variable lighting for traffic routes. It will also explore conflct areas, explain CIE photometry and the changes from currently dropping a lighting class to dropping the light levels required based on the light source S/P ratio.

It’s a full day training session run by  expert Nick Smith, pictured right,  and it’s taking place at Regent House, Regent Place, Rugby CV21 2PN on 11 Wednesday 11 November and it will costs ILP members £199 + VAT and others £350 + VAT.
