Did you know you can invite Cancer Council ACT into your workplace to present SunSmart to your workers. Cancer Council ACT encourages indoor and outdoor (WH&S) workplaces, local and federal government agencies and community groups to consider hosting a free SunSmart Workplace Information Session to raise skin cancer prevention and early detection awareness among workers and their families.
The SunSmart Services Coordinator from Cancer Council ACT can present a:
- 1 hour SunSmart Information Session for all workers at a time and location 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.
- 1 hour SunSmart "Managers Only" Information Session - ie Occupational UV Exposure including WH&S Responsibilities and Duty of Care.
- 15 minute "toolbox talk" with all workers - a quick overview and reminder about why workers need to be SunSmart and the importance of knowing their skin and getting it checked if they have any concerns.
Canberra workplaces can also take advantage of Cancer Council ACT's NEW "Skin Scanner" to learn more about how individual skin types react to UV radiation - please just allow more time during your session for this opportunity.
Each of the above options include take home brochures for all participants plus posters and a 44 page guidebook for the workplace (where outdoor workers are involved).
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
- skin cancer prevention
