    Outdoor workers receive five to ten times more UV radiation exposure than indoor workers, significantly increasing their risk of developing skin cancer, including melanoma.  It is estimated that around 200 melanomas and 34,000 non-melanoma skin cancers per year are caused by occupational exposures in Australia.


    Work health and safety legislation requires workplaces to provide a safe working environment and workers have an obligation to cooperate with their workplaces sun protection program.

    Implementing a comprehensive skin protection program, including a range of protective measures, can help prevent sun-related injuries and reduce the suffering and costs associated with skin cancer.
