The risks and uncertainties in photobiological measurements have attracted more attention. Positive and negative effects of optical radiation on the visual analyzer, skin and psychophysiological functions of the human body have been established. Herein, standardized the quantities of optical radiation in 5 systems. Additionally, photobiological quantities and the traceability of their measurements were investigated. The risks and uncertainties of photobiological measurements were analyzed with the example of weighted radiance (LB). Combining the influence of optical radiation on human body, the map of safety intervals was creatively proposed, and the connection between uncertainty and photobiological measurement has been established.
