Sun safety at work
02 July 2015
Safety company Arco is highlighting the need for sun protection at work to combat the UK’s fast growing skin cancer rate.
An estimated 86% of malignant melanoma cases in the UK are linked to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Arco believes that sun protection is a vital element of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).
The company’s protection products include the Deb SunPROTECT range of sun creams, which are perfume-free, non-greasy and water-resistant. These include a 150ml tube for individuals and a one-litre cartridge, plus a dispenser for larger teams.
The Deb SunPROTECT Skin Safety Centre helps to raise awareness of UV danger at work with a pre-assembled one-litre dispenser of sun cream. It also includes a set of numbered cards for displaying the current UV level, and a QR code which links to the Met Office’s weather and UV level web page so that UV index cards can be regularly updated.
