In brief: Hard to quantify
All ordinary lights are well below danger levels.
Sunlight could be harmful if you stare at it (very uncomfortable) and there are precautions for sun eclipse watchers. Lasers have warnings but many are high intensity and precautions should be taken. Welders are very familiar with precautions against light exposure as are glass workers.
