Abstract

Aim of special sessionThe exposure to Solar UV Radiation is a significant risk factor in several occupational activities and the adverse health effects induced in exposed workers, mainly to the skin and to the eye, are relevant, frequent and well documented. Nevertheless, we have to admit that this important occupational risk is usually underestimated, if not ignored. On the contrary, the development of adequate preventive measures represents a priority in OHS. Objective of this Special Session is an update on the results on exposure evaluation, adverse effects and enforceable prevention strategies in exposed workersPresentersMarch Wittlich1, Pietro Sartorelli2, Swen Malte John3, Alberto Modenese4, Peter Connaughton5, Shengli Niu61Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (IFA), Sankt Augustin, Germany2Unit of Occupational Medicine AOU Senese, Department of Medical Biotechnology, University of Siena, Siena, Italy3Department of Dermatology, Environmental Medicine, Health Theory – Faculty of Human Sciences, University of Osnabrueck, Osnabrueck, Germany4University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy5The Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Perth, Australia6International Labour Office, Geneva, Switzerland
