Melanoma - check your skin for cancer

More people die of skin cancer each year than are killed on our roads, and outside workers are exposed to up to 10 times the UV radiation of indoor workers.

But early detection can prevent most skin cancer deaths - a message that's particularly important for businesses with people who work outside. 

Below are a range of resources from the Te Hiringa Hauora (the Health Promotion Agency) and other organisations, such as Melanoma New Zealand, including posters, flyers and a wallet card showing how to check your skin for cancer and what various melanomas look like.

Because it is essential the resources showing moles are well printed with the right colours, some resources below are not available for download and can only be ordered in hardcopy. 

Also see resources to help bust myths around sun safety, aimed primarily at male outdoor workers.
