Working safely in the sun!


“Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Every year over 440,000 Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer & 1,900 people will die from the disease. WA has the second highest rate of skin cancer in country. The good news is that skin cancer is largely preventable by minimising exposure to UV radiation from the sun.”

Being SunSmart is a simple and effective way to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.

  • Slip on sun-protective clothing

Choose long pants and long sleeve collared shirts.

  • Slop on SPF 30+ sunscreen

Use a broad spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen and apply 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply at least every 2 hours.

  • Slap on a broad-brimmed hat

A hat should cover your head, face, neck and ears. Use a brim attachment for hard hats or helmets.

  • Seek shade

Reduce your exposure to the sun, especially between 10am and 3pm when UV radiation is most intense.

  • Slide on sunglasses

Go for close-fitting, wrap-around styles. Check your skin regularly and see your doctor immediately if you notice a spot that has changed in size, shape or colour.
