Title Personal monitoring of exposure to ultraviolet radiation in the car manufacturing industry
Bibliographic information 1986, Vol.30, No.2, p.163-170. Illus. 10 ref.
Abstract Polysulfone film badges were used to monitor the ultraviolet radiation exposure of automobile paint inspectors. The doses measured were very much lower than the permissible exposures; it is unlikely that the radiation was the cause of the facial rashes which were noted before the study.
