Our Objective

There is a plethora of information out there regarding UV
exposure as a risk factor in the workplace. With the Sun Safe
Workplace scheme, the charity wanted to create a portal that
brings that information together, making it easy for employers to
access resources that are engaging, easy to comprehend and
deliver within staff education programs.

All employers have a duty of care to assess health risks at work.
We know that in around 80% of cases, skin cancer is caused
by over exposure to UV, it is thus largely preventable! Education
on the prevention and early detection of the disease is therefore
paramount and really needs to be on everyone’s agenda.

The four simple steps within the Sun Safe Workplaces interactive
guide ensures that employers implement a suitable sun safe
policy and teachings, potentially reducing their liability. In doing
this companies are able to gain recognition via the Sun Safe
Workplaces accreditation for proactively fulfilling their duty of care
and ultimately saving lives.
