The assessment of human UV exposure is an important part of any public health research program investigating potential positive and negative health effects from exposure to artificial and environmental levels of UV. Human UV exposure depends on a variety of factors such as location, activity, UV protective devices used, and body posture. This paper will provide an overview of techniques that may be used for assessing UV exposures, such as UV dosimetry and UV exposure modelling. Results presented in this paper highlight the need for further research into human UV exposure assessments, in particular for population groups considered not at risk, such as homeworkers.
