Businesses can also take action to help their people know to be SunSmart whenever they're in the sun - whether that's taking a walk at lunchtime, or going to the beach on the weekend.
- Put up posters and other resources about the need to be SunSmart, educating staff on the five SunSmart steps, Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap.
- Provide information sessions or resources with information on the prevalence and impact of skin cancer in New Zealand, being safe in the sun, such as busting common myths, understanding UV, Vitamin D and sun exposure, and how to be SunSmart wherever they are.
- Encourage staff to use protective equipment (such as sunscreen, protective clothing, hats and eye protection) at work, and even away from work.
- Encourage them to check their skin and to visit their GP if they notice a new or changing spot, freckle or mole.
