As a business owner, how can I promote sun safety?

As a business owner you can promote sun safety by doing the following:

  • Post skin safety tips near major entrances for your employees to read before stepping out into the sun.
  • Create computer screen savers featuring an ultraviolet (UV) safety theme, which encourages skin cancer screening, staying out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., using sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher, and covering up with long sleeves and a hat.
  • Provide promotional items like small containers of sunscreen or sun visors, featuring nurse line phone numbers and reminders to get skin cancer screenings at any events your site is sponsoring this month.
  • Ask a health professional (a dermatologist, registered nurse, etc.) to demonstrate to employees during an educational event how to check skin regularly for skin-cancer warning signs.
