UV light safety training

Any organisation operating UV light equipment where there is a reasonable risk of personal exposure, are legally required to provide specific information and training to their employees.

This could include:

  • Operators of UV light equipment
  • Those working with or around UV light sources
  • Line managers and supervisors
  • Technical and operation managers
  • Maintenance engineers
  • R&D Staff

Most accidents or ill health from workplace exposure to UV light can be traced back to inadequate or incorrect information provided by suppliers of UV light sources and/or unsuitable or insufficient training for workers.

It is essential that workers exposed to UV light do not exceed Statutory Exposure Limits to prevent acute effects, such as erythema and photo keratoconjunctivitis, and are provided with specific information and training.

In addition, exposure should be reduced as low as reasonably practicable to minimise any contribution to cumulative lifelong exposure, which is linked to chronic adverse health effects, such as skin cancer, ocular melanoma and cataracts.

Our training courses help companies protect workers and ensure compliance with their legal obligations.
