Enhancing 'Sun Safety' for Outdoor Workplaces
New 'Sun Safety at Work' Resources available from the Occupational Cancer Research Centre
More needs to be done to make workplaces safer for people who work outside.
The sun exposes outdoor workers to both heat and solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This puts workers at risk for heat stress, skin cancer, sun burn, skin damage, cataracts, and other eye conditions.
Workplaces need to embed sun safety into their occupational health and safety management systems and programs to protect their workers.
The Occupational Cancer Research Centre and Sun Safety at Work Canada are developing a comprehensive range of resources to support workplaces to become more sun safe.
