SKIN CANCER PREVENTION

Sub-Categories
  • PROTECT YOUR FAMILY AND YOURSELF FROM SKIN CANCER
    Stay sun-safe outdoors by staying in the shade, especially during midday hours; wearing sun protection gear including a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and a long-sleeved shirt; and applying a thick layer of broad-spectrum sunscreen. Also, discourage children and teens from indoor tanning and sunbathing.
  • PROTECT YOUR STUDENTS FROM SKIN CANCER
    Students are typically at school during midday hours when the UV rays from the sun are strongest. Recess and other outdoor activities during midday can put students at risk if they aren’t protected. Educators can increase shade, encourage sun-safe behaviors, use proven education programs, and discourage indoor tanning and sunbathing.
  • PROTECT YOUR VISITORS AND FELLOW MEMBERS FROM SKIN CANCER
    Visitors and staff of outdoor recreational areas are at risk of getting too much sun exposure. Parks and recreation staff can provide shade in high-use areas; sell sun protection items like wide-brimmed hats, protective clothing, and umbrellas; and provide broad-spectrum sunscreen.
  • PROTECT YOUR WORKERS FROM SKIN CANCER
    Skin cancer can greatly reduce workers’ productivity. Providing and encouraging sun protection for outdoor workers helps create a healthy and safe workplace.
