Cancer Council ACT encourages all workplaces, local and federal government and community groups to consider hosting a SunSmart Workplace Information Session to raise skin cancer prevention and early detection awareness amongst workers and their families.
The SunSmart Services Coordinator from Cancer Council ACT can present a SunSmart Information Session on site at your workplace at a time that suits you and your workers. The sessions are very informative yet kept informal and work well as a reminder to all workers (outdoor and indoor workers) to protect their skin from the sun's UVR.
Each 1 hour session includes a skin cancer prevention and know your skin brochure for all participants plus posters for the workplace and question time. Topics covered include:
- what is ultraviolet radiation (UVR)?
- skin cancer in Australia
- Work Health and Safety (outdoor workplaces)
- what is skin cancer?
- knowing your skin and the importance of early detection
- SunSmart UV Alert
- vitamin D and sun protection
