Our pal The Sun has been getting stronger over the years, which brings a higher risk of skin cancer for outdoor workers.
Outdoor workers, such as construction workers are exposed to 10 times the recommended daily UV exposure level. They are also 6 times more likely to develop skin cancer compared to the rest of the population.
A new infographic from Deb Group on sun safety goes into detail about the sun’s three types of radiation: UVA, UVB, and UVC and the financial cost it has in North America. It also provides some helpful tips on how workers can prevent long term damage.
