UV radiation is a known carcinogen. It is also the major cause of skin cancer in Australia and represents a major workplace hazard to employees who spend some http://www.coltsrookiestore.com/Colts-Jack-Mewhort-Jersey/ , or all, of their working day outdoors.

Outdoor workers:
are exposed to sun for extended periods of time throughout their working life.
receive significantly more UV radiation than people who work indoors.have a higher than average risk of developing common skin cancers.

Duty of care
State Occupational Health and Safety Acts require employers to provide and maintain safe working environments. Employers must ensure their employees can work safely and without risk to their health – this includes exposure to UV radiation. In turn, employees have a responsibility for their own safety and health and must follow UV protection policies and use sun protective measures provided.

Cooperation between employers and employees can help minimise UV exposure in the workplace, this may include:

reducing the amount of time outdoor workers spend in the sun.
providing and maintaining equipment needed to protect workers from the sun.
information, instruction, training and supervision to reduce UV exposure.

More information about sunsmart workplaces is available in Cancer Council’s position statement on Sun protection in the workplace.

Your state or territory Cancer Council can assist your organisation in meeting its duty of care by providing a range of professional services and resources for your workplace. These include ‘fee for service’ education workshops and advice on developing and implementing a sun protection plan in your workplace.

Workplace guides to skin cancer prevention

Outdoor workers can be at particularly high risk of skin cancer. Cancer Council provides a number of resources designed to reduce the risk of skin cancer in the workplace:

Skin cancer and outdoor work: a guide for employers
Skin cancer and outdoor work: a guide for working safely in the sun brochure

Tax deductions for personal protective equipment (PPE)

Since 2002 workers in a wide range of outdoor occupations have been able to claim the cost of sunglasses, hats and sunscreen as a tax deduction. This is because wearing sun protective clothing, sunglasses, sunscreen and hats is no different from wearing safety boots, hard hats or gloves to reduce workplace injury. For more information visit the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) website.

National Hazard Exposure Worker Surveillance – Sunlight Report

Cancer Council Victoria in conjunction with Safe Work Australia recently released the National Hazard Exposure Worker Surveillance Report: Exposure to Direct Sunlight and the Provision of Sun Exposure Controls in Australian Workplaces report.

In the first national study of workplace radiation exposure across industies, occupations and demographics, the report studies Australian workers exposure to direct sunlight and the measures employers take to eliminate.
URUMQI, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- World junior silver medalist Jin Boyang lit up the figure skating competition at the National Winter Games here on Friday when he landed four quadruple jumps to claim the men's title with 196.62 points.


Jin, who already had a clear lead after the short program, finished well clear of Yan Han on 178.90 points. Song Nan took bronze with 146.75 points.


Performing four quadruple jumps, the 18-year-old Jin finished his free skate routine to the music "Dragon Racing" that drew waves of applause from the stands.


"This is my best free skate performance so far in this season," said Jin, the first ever skater to have landed four quad jumps in a free skate and six quads in a competition.


Jin has set his eyes on the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in 2018. "My goal is to become China's first male figure skater who makes it to the podium."


Li Zijun, the bronze medalist at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympics, posted a winning total of 121.56 points to retain the ladies title. Zhao Ziquan won the silver, while Liang Yi grabbed a rare bronze medal for Hong Kong.


Partnering with Han Cong, world silver medalist Sui Wenjing overcame foot injuries to win the pairs gold medal with 236.56 points, their highest score for this season.


"Sui has been plagued for months by ligament injuries in her feet," said Sui's coach, Zhao Hongbo. "She may need to undergo a surgery."


In ice hockey, Qiqihar men's team pulled off an upset when they beat five-time champions Harbin 3-1 to clinch their first title since 2003. Chengde defeated Jiamusi 4-1 in the bronze medal match.


Harbin underlined its superiority in curling, beating hosts Urumqi 5-2 in the men's final and Qiqihar in the women's final.


The 13th National Winter Games will close after the final three gold medals are decided on Sunday. For the first time since the winter sports gala was introduced in 1959 the games have been held outside the northeastern provinces of Heilongjiang and Jilin, where the fragid climate means winter sports have traditionally enjoyed popularity.


ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Russian Premier League leaders Zenit St. Petersburg have confirmed their status as the nation's most popular football team with a strong showing in a nationwide survey conducted by PROsport magazine.


The survey, which ranked Russia's 100 most popular sportspeople based on national media presence, featured a total of 22 footballers and four Zenit stars.


Striker Alexander Kerzhakov placed 4th in the national survey behind figure-skater Evgeni Plushenko, tennis star Maria Sharapova and ice hockey sensation Alexander Ovechkin.


Zenit midfielder and prodigal son Andrei Arshavin came in 15th on the list, while goalkeepers Yuri Lodygin and Vyachesl.
