Ultraviolet radiation exposure in a welding environment

Tenkate, Thomas D. & Collins, Michael J. (1994) Ultraviolet radiation exposure in a welding environment. In Australian Institute of Occupational Hygeinists, Proceedings of the Thirteenth Annual Conference 1994.



The personal UV exposure levels of a group of welders and nearby works has been estimated using a photosensitive polymer film, polysulphone. The polysulphone film was attached to eye protection, and workers clothing and also placed throughout the workarea. the estimated ocular exposure for all aubjects were found to exceed the maximum permissible exposure limit. The results sugguest welders require ocular protection on addition to welding helmets and any exposured skin area of workers on this environment also requires protection.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
