Measurement and control of ultraviolet light exposure

Avoidable ill health from over exposure to UV light in the workplace often occurs due to misinformation or misunderstanding.

Workers exposed to UV light must not exceed Statutory Exposure Limits and be provided with specific information and training.

Employers must be able to make a clear and unambiguous statement that Exposure Limits are observed or exceeded.

Our UV measurement and assessment services will determine workers level of exposure and compare with Exposure Limits as a means of assessing risk and necessary controls
