A flash burn is caused by bright ultraviolet (UV) light such as from a welding torch. It can potentially cause severe pain for your employees.
Welders Flash, also referred to as 'Arc Eye', is a prevalent concern among individuals who work with UV light, particularly welders. This condition manifests as a painful inflammation of the cornea - the transparent tissue that overlays the front of the eye - akin to experiencing sunburn in the eye. Welders Flash has the potential to impact both of your eyes, causing significant discomfort and posing a risk to vision. It's essential to recognise and mitigate this risk to maintain optimal eye health.
