October is National Safe Work Month and each year all workers and employers across the country are reminded to commit to building safe and healthy workplaces for all Australians.
Outdoor workers receive 5 to 10 times more UV radiation exposure than indoor workers, significantly increasing their risk of developing skin cancer, including melanoma.
UV radiation has been identified as a class 1 carcinogen (in the same category as asbestos and tobacco), posing a serious occupational risk for those working outdoors and is responsible for 95-99% of all skin cancers.
UV radiation, a workplace hazard you don't see coming!
To learn how to protect yourself or your workers from UV radiation, come along on to our FREE education session Monday 8th October, 3:00pm – 4:30pm at the Cancer Council SA office (202 Greenhill Road, Eastwood).
Ideal for sole traders and small-medium business, this session is open to anyone who works outdoors, or manages staff and/or volunteers who work outdoors.

Workplaces are ideal settings to encourage positive health behaviours that can in turn influence worker’s health and well-being, productivity and workplace culture. Book into a session today!
