||This book provides information and advice on protecting workers from ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure. The adverse health effects of both acute and chronic UVR exposures are reviewed, emphasizing solar UVR exposure of the outdoor worker. Epidemiological observations and health consequences concerning exposure to UVR (180-400 nm) are also addressed. The publication is produced jointly by International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the WHO.
