Information and training

Designed to help employers to meet their legal obligations for the safe use of UV light in the workplace.

The Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010 brought into law in Great Britain on 27th April 2010 the European Physical Agents (Artificial Optical Radiation 2006/25/EC) Directive.

The regulations define the following:

UV risk management training

One day course aimed at health and safety professionals and those responsible for risk assessment and safe use of UV light equipment, welders or plasma cutters in your workplace.

The training course will provide:

  • Information to help you meet your legal obligations for compliance with the UV light personal exposure limits and provision of specific hazard awareness training for employees
  • Template for risk assessment and hazard awareness training
    Action plans – e.g. UV light measurement and assessment surveys, implementation of additional control measures and hazard awareness programmes for employees
