Quantifying the effects of simple measures to reduce the occupational solar ultraviolet exposure of outdoor workers
Parisi, Alfio V. & Kimlin, Michael G. (1999) Quantifying the effects of simple measures to reduce the occupational solar ultraviolet exposure of outdoor workers. Journal of Occupational Health Safety Australia New Zealand, 15(3), pp. 267-272.
Taking sun sheltered meal and tea breaks around solar noon can reduce occupational exposure to solar erythemal ultraviolet (UV) radiation by outdoor workers. The research presented in this paper has quantified the reductions in solar UV exposure to be expected in summer and winter for different scenarios of break times for this high UV exposure occupational group of the population.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
