What safety precautions should be taken when using germicidal UVC
In personal protection applications (the use of lamps for room irradiation in homes, schools, offices, etc.), indirect fixtures such as TB and Corner Mount fixtures are mounted above eye level. Only the upper air is irradiated and persons or animals occupying the area receive no direct exposure. Direct ultraviolet irradiations, such as American Ultraviolet's Utility Fixtures or Deluxe Surface Mounted Fixtures, irradiate the air in the entire room. In such installations, personnel should be protected by wearing either goggles or face shields, such as American Ultraviolet's Ultra-Spec 100 Safety Goggles and Ultra-Shield Face Shields designed for ultraviolet exposure, and by covering as much skin as possible with clothing or sun block.
