Sun Safety at Work Canada wants workplaces to be safer for people who work outside. The sun exposes outdoor workers to both heat and solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This puts workers at risk for heat stress, skin cancer, sun burn, skin damage, cataracts, and other eye conditions.
However, workplaces can embed sun safety into their occupational health and safety management systems or program to protect their workers. Sun Safety at Work Canada is developing a comprehensive range of resources to support workplaces to become more sun safe.
Here are some of the resources we have developed to enhance sun safety in Canadian workplaces.
