The ERGONOMIC Institute offers a variety of information related to our topics but not necessarily created by us. E.g. through the ILO Encyclopaedia visitors of our website get a direct link to articles written by 2.000 specialists and related to our topic health and safety. Another very valuable source is the database hyperphysics related to light and color. Since this topic attracts special interest from various groups of visitors, we offer the related info on a separate website (CyberLux.de). Similarly, infos related to light and health and safety are located in the website „Healthylight.de“.
