But we don’t just get sunburnt lying at the beach in summer. UV levels across Australia show that it is possible to get skin damage in autumn and winter too.

Every year in Australia, it’s estimated that over 200 melanomas and 34,000 other skin cancers are caused by UV exposure in the workplace.Every year in Australia, it’s estimated that over 200 melanomas and 34,000 other skin cancers are caused by UV exposure in the workplace.

UV radiation is the main cause of skin cancer so it’s important to be sun safe in the workplace. Work health and safety legislation enforces it, acknowledging that workers must be protected by employers or Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU), by providing a safe work environment free of health risks. This includes reducing the risk of exposure to UV radiation by employees who spend large amounts of time working outdoors.
