    Meet the team


    Paul Anderson,
    Managing Director

    Paul Anderson has dedicated the last five years to harnessing UV technology for sterilising, disinfection, and air purification in the food industry. His background is in the meat trade, and he has also worked as a government food inspector, as well as had hands-on experience in odour control for the waste recycling industry. It was whilst working in the meat trade that he spotted a gap in the market for the use of UV sterilisation of knives. For Paul, the next logical step was to invent and patent a solution that would eliminate bacteria, without the need for heat or steam which would enhance food safety. The UVC technology was not new, but it was not being used effectively for knives.

    In the waste sector, huge fans were used to spray perfumed chemicals, a costly way of masking rather than eliminating odours. Paul knew UV could be a viable alternative here too. UV Safe was born and has gone from strength to strength ever since.

    The science and its benefits

    We can help you create a safer and cleaner working environment, with the added benefits of huge savings on maintenance costs, water, and energy use, with our cutting-edge UV solutions.

    Ultraviolet light destroys the molecular bonds that hold the DNA of viruses and bacteria together. This quality can be harnessed through ultraviolet germicidal irradiation; a disinfection method (UVGI) that uses short wavelength ultraviolet (UVC) light.

    UVGI devices can produce strong enough UVC light in circulating air or surface systems to make them inhospitable environments to microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, moulds and other pathogens. UVGI has been used for disinfection since the mid-20th century, primarily in medical sanitation and sterile work facilities.
