Today at our Lighting United event, we announced our online training platform and launched two brand new Professional Guidance Notes.
New ILP online training platform
The ILP is delighted to now be able to offer online courses for lighting professionals.
If you are new to the lighting industry or would like an informative refresher course, the Fundamental Lighting Course is exactly what you need.
The courses offered enable lighting professionals to maximise their potential and build their knowledge base to make them stand out from the crowd.
Our courses are open to members and non-members alike.
PLG23: Lighting for Cycling Infrastructure
This document updates and supersedes Technical report 23 Lighting of Cycle Tracks. It is a comprehensive review of current lighting standards and guidance and applies them to cycling infrastructure. This document includes guidance for cycle tracks where surfaces are shared with pedestrians and cycle lanes forming either part of the carriageway sharing the space with motorised vehicles or sharing the footway with pedestrians. The document also discusses the need for lighting, environmental and ecology impacts and explains how appropriate lighting levels should be determined including facilities such as storage and parking facilities.
PLG09: Ensuring Visibility Within Short Tunnels
British Standard BS5489-2: 2016 Code of practice for the design of road lighting, Lighting of tunnels, is the go-to Standard that defines and advises the lighting requirements in road tunnels. However, when is a tunnel not a tunnel? When it’s a short tunnel!. BS5489-2 defines a tunnel as being over 150m in length, but with motorway widening and other infrastructure projects, many highway bridges do not meet the full tunnel lighting requirements but need consideration for all road user groups. This is where PLG09 could be used.
