The COVID-19 pandemic has many people thinking about ways to disrupt its spread. Since the late 1800s we have known that ultraviolet (UV) light can provide effective sanitization.

Recently, we have seen a growing trend where ultraviolet germicidal devices on offer do not include effective means for containment or limitation of UV-C exposure. Questions about the safety risks of such applications continue to grow.

Please join Bahram Barzideh, UL primary designated engineer, as he presents background and concepts on this technology. The information will provide clarity that is beneficial for both those manufacturing or considering the use of UV-C for germicidal purposes. Product designers, safety engineers, health professionals and consumers are welcome!
