UV light is has been known to cause damage to the skin, so it is recommended that people limit their exposure to germicidal lamps as it can have harmful effects to the eyes and skin. However,  far-UVC light is a new method that has been proven to disinfect while not being harmful for human contact. To prevent any hazards, it is critical the fixtures are installed correctly and staff are educated and properly trained on its usage.
