With the advancement in ways of operations, it has been possible to come up with various tools and equipment used in various sectors. With the scientific knowledge and research that people have acquired and put into practice, it has been possible to control the various development of organisms. In the day to day activities, there are many organisms which keep on being manufactured out of their reactions and have to be destroyed since they can cause harm by the use of the ultraviolet germicide lamps. There are many small microorganisms and pathogens such as the bacteria, fungi and viruses which develop as a result of decomposition and combination of various substances and have to be done away with. Ultraviolet rays are very much effective in the total eradication of those pathogens and have been preferred the most.
The ultraviolet germicide lamps are scientifically designed to emit out strong ultraviolet rays in designated areas where pathogens are majorly fond of developing. The exposure of the ultraviolet rays to the human body is not safe and can lead to many impairments which makes it essential to have a lot of protective tips. The use of the germicide lamps is very much different from the rest of the lamps and there are manufacturer’s instructions to be followed. The manufacturers of the lamps know well how to use and even the rate of emitting the ultraviolet rays from it to disinfect the area intended to and is essential to follow such instructions to avoid messing.
The face of the individual has to be covered fully by the masks which prevent the face from direct ultraviolet rays and one has to abide by it since the rays are all over the place. Starting with the eyes and the rest of the face, a protective gear has to be worn to avoid direct exposure of the ultraviolet rays emitted. Besides, direct viewing of the germicide lamps which have been switched on should be avoided since the eyes can be totally ruined. The strength and intensity of the ultraviolet rays is very strong and viewing it directly even for few seconds can lead to damage.
It is not easy for the ultraviolet rays to get cleared from the atmosphere and thus is necessary to turn it on from the source when work has been completed. It is possible to come into contact with the used ultraviolet rays and are still effective that they can affect the individual hence is essential to work when the source it turned off and for the pathogens to be destroyed which are formed after working. The constant contact with the tools and items inside the lab area can be unsafe and safety is enhanced by the use of the gloves. The constant movements from one place to another can make one to accidentally come into contact with some of the contaminated products.
