This paper addresses the question: “What is happening when we change the lighting at an industrial workplace?” and develops a new approach for looking at the effects of a change of lighting at the workplace on performance. Installing new lighting in the workplace may influence the performance of people working there by way of several mechanisms. In this paper the mechanisms are described: visual performance, visual comfort, visual ambience, interpersonal relationships, biological clock, stimulation, job satisfaction, problem solving, the halo effect, and the change process. The importance of these mechanisms is discussed and the results of old field studies in industrial environments have been put together to illustrate the effect of lighting change in industry.
