Hand and eye protection should be worn at all times when light is burning.

Eye protection must be used when working with short-wave , mid-wave and long-time exposure to longwave UV light sources. Damage to the eyes occurs from exposure to the shorter wavelengths of ultraviolet, known as UV-B (280-315nm) and UV-C (280nm and below). Damage occurs here in the form of photokeratitis (inflammation of the cornea), conjunctivitis, inflammation of the conjunctiva and retinal lesions. The first two being colloquially known as "welder's flash" and "snow blindness."
