Exposure limits for different wavelengths of UV radiation

Recommended by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists
  ACGIH to protect Human beings..

For the ultraviolet spectral region 200-315 nm, the exposure of unprotected skin or eye should not exceed the values given in the table within an 8-hour period.

For the UV-A or near ultraviolet spectral region (315 to 400 nm), exposure to the eye should not exceed 1 milliwatt per square centimeter (1.0 mW/cm2) for periods greater than 1000 seconds (approximately 16 minutes).
For exposure times less than 1000 seconds, the dose (total energy) should not exceed 1.0 J/cm2.
