Abstract

This paper intends to be a tentative summaryof the state of knowledge on the quantifi cation ofoccupational exposure to solar ultraviolet (UV) radiationby reviewing the relevant literature. The authors havealready published some studies on this topic usingpolysulphone (PS) dosimetry, providing a signifi cantcontribution to the few studies on the quantifi cation ofUV exposure for professional outdoor workers in Italy. Thepaper also highlights the importance of such studies inthe Mediterranean area and the Italian territory, with highpotential to receive intense solar UV doses through mostof the year.
