Be UV Aware
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the world
Too much exposure to Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun causes sunburn, skin damage and increases the risk of skin cancer. UV rays come from the sun and when they reach the earth's surface they are strong enough to damage the skin.
Outdoor workers have a higher than average risk of developing skin cancer, and 71% of workers are not provided sunscreen at work. Schools also have a responsibility to ensure that children have access to sun protective measures and are actively educated on an annual basis about the importance of sun safety.
