The WHO cautions that UV lamps should not be used to sterilise hands or other areas of skin, as UV radiation can cause skin irritation. Acute (short-term) effects include redness or ulceration of the skin. At high levels of exposure, these burns can be serious. For chronic (long-term) exposures, there is also a cumulative risk, which depends on the amount of exposure during your lifetime. The long-term risk for large cumulative exposure includes premature aging of the skin and skin cancer.
ZENZOE systems are equipped with UV-C safety systems to detect the human presence and switch off the UV-C lamps automatically, as well as an emergency stop provision. However, operators shall wear suitable Personal protective equipment (PPE) while operating UV-C disinfection solutions. Please contact us to know more details.
