Normal and Defective Colour Vision

This chapter describes a survey of colour contingent tasks with regard to colours used, redundancy of coding, and significance of error, both safety and financial. From this, researchers identified the most critical issues on the basis that the worst case sets the colour vision testing and pass criteria needed. This was carried out at the New South Wales Fire Brigades Training College and selected fire stations in Sydney with the assistance of fire-fighters at those locations.
