Germicidal lamps used on the body exposes you to harmful ultraviolet radiation which may cause injury and increase your risk of skin cancer and permanent eye damage.
The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) has issued a product warning to advise consumers of the dangers of portable devices that emit ultraviolet radiation (UVR).
We’re pleased to be partnering with the Central Highlands Regional Council to establish Queensland’s fourth location for collection of real time ultraviolet (UV) data.
We maintain a network of solar ultraviolet (UV) measurements in major Australian cities and in the Australian Antarctic territories.
There is well established evidence that exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from the sun can lead to skin cancer. Seeking shade is a practical form of sun protection when used with a combination of other protective measures.
