Shining a light on UVR

The dangers of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) are well established, with the irrefutable link between sun exposure and skin cancers now accepted. While many workplaces develop policies and procedures designed to limit UVR exposure from the sun, workers across a range of occupations and industries are also subjected to non-solar sources of UVR, necessitating a hand protection solution that offers appropriate defence.

Typical risk scenarios include laboratory environments such as forensic examination, the use of UV transilluminators in molecular biology, dentistry applications, laser material processing and microelectronics. High risk industrial activities include arc welding and paint or ink curing.
