Safety – Working with UV-C Light
UV-C light is highly dangerous to living organisms, including humans.
Please read the safety precautions which come with all of our portable lights.
UV-C light emitted by the lamp is highly harmful to humans and other living organisms. UV-C light is harmful to the eyes and skin. After starting the lamp, no people or animals must be within the range of the direct UV-C rays. You must always minimise the time of being within the range of the UV-C rays.
Lamp damage bears a low risk of negative impact on your health. If the fluorescent lamps break, ventilate the room for 30 minutes and remove the parts, preferably with gloves. Place them in a sealed plastic bag and take to a local waste disposal facility for recycling. Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
Important Safety Notice
Never look directly at the UV-C light or stay within range. Safety glasses are recommended.
Secure the working area to prevent other people from being exposed to the dangerous UV-C light.
“Our test results show that above a specific dose of UV-C radiation, viruses were completely inactivated: in a matter of seconds we could no longer detect any virus.”
