When performing radiology or external radiation therapy, employees are exposed to ionising radiation. The uvex RX cd 5505 flip-up spectacles provide optimal protection against x-rays.
Many employees in the healthcare sector, especially in the dental sector, are exposed to blue UV and LED radiation. The orange tint of the uvex super f OTG spectacles blocks the transmission of light by up to 525 nm and is therefore ideal for dentists and dental technicians among others.
If it is not possible to completely remove human exposure to an activated UVC lamp, it is recommended that individuals wear a combination of eye and face protection in addition to appropriate UV protective clothing for body and hands. This should consist of a visor (according to EN166 and EN170) to protect the eyes and face from UV radiation. Where there is a danger of glare and/or strong blue light emission from the lamp, the addition of safety eyewear with a very dark tinted lens should also be considered.
