At EasyHealthnSafety we love the sun too and we see it so rarely – while we may be conscious of taking care of our skin on hols we tend to neglect it when working outdoors. So mind the heads, shoulders and even the builders bums!!
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Northern Ireland and the incidence is increasing. Overexposure to UV radiation from the sun is the major environmental cause of all types of skin cancer. Despite the unpredictable climate, on average people who work outdoors receive 3 to 4 times more UV exposure each year than people who work indoors. This exposure puts outdoor workers at greater risk of skin cancer.
