Abstract

In research laboratories ultraviolet radiation is widely used, particularly in photochemistry and photobiology, as a sterilizing agent and for the characterization of samples. The results of a survey conducted near several university laboratories are presented with the aim of quantifying exposure levels to UV-incoherent radiation and to assess individual risk for researchers and students. It has been shown that exposure is not negligible, especially if safety procedures are neglected and personal protective equipments, described in this study, are not used.
