Sun safety education is an important issue, given that 2 in 3 Australians will develop skin cancer by the age of 70, according to statistics.
In light of this, almost $900,000 in Healthway grants has been allocated to sun safety education and awareness programs.
In the height of summer, it’s important to remember to be sun safe to prevent skin cancer. This message is especially crucial to construction workers who spend most of their time outdoors in the direct sun.
Each year more than 2300 people die as a result of skin cancer, so good sun safe behaviour is important for all Australians.
