  • Statutory UV light exposure limit values (ELVs)
  • Minimum health & safety requirements for protection of workers from risks arising or likely to arise from artificial UV light exposure
  • Employers must determine personal UV light exposure levels and compare with the exposure limit values as a means of assessing risk and necessary controls

Topics include:

  • Definition and classification of UV light
  • Potential adverse health effects to unprotected skin and eyes from overexposure to UV light
  • Heightened individual susceptibility
  • Detection of adverse health effects and reporting
  • Entitlement to medical examination/health surveillance where necessary
