EBC: Working with UV-light

UV-light from light boxes

  • Protect eyes and skin to UV-light. Rays may be harmful to eyes and skin.
  • Wear safety glasses (must be rated for UV protection). If you will be exposed more than a few seconds, wear full-face shield.
  • The skin is damaged by UV radiation as well. Severe skin burns can happen in a very short time and the effects of long-time exposures are not yet well known.
  • The skin of the hands and arms should be protected by gloves and long sleeves.
