Sun Exposure Still Putting Workers at Risk

Many employers aren’t providing their workers with the necessary sun protection despite the high rate of illnesses and diseases due to sun exposure.

The latest SHARC Report (Skin Health Australia Report Card) found that 2 million workers that work outdoors aren’t being provided with any sun protection by their employers. This is unacceptable.

It’s crucial that employers adopt sun safe practices and be aware of their duty of care to staff relating to sun protection.

Part of providing safe working conditions includes protecting workers from sun exposure, by providing protection such as sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and long-sleeved tops.

According to the report, 57 per cent of people surveyed said their employers failed to even supply them with sunscreen.
