The Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010, brought into law on 27th April 2010 The European Physical Agents (Artificial Optical Radiation 2006/25/EC) Directive (AORD).
The regulations define:
- Statutory UV light exposure limit values (ELVs)
- Minimum health & safety requirements for the protection of workers from risks arising or likely to arise from artificial UV light exposure
The regulations state:
- Workers must not be exposed above the exposure limit values (ELVs) and should be provided with specific information, instruction and training
- Employers must determine personal UV light exposure levels and compare with the exposure limit values as a means of assessing risk
All of our UV equipment is supplied with maximum permissible exposure times for the skin and eyes at specified distances from the source.
We also provide PPE, hazard warnings, shielding and guarding, risk management training and where required, on-site measurements and training.
