Busting sun safety myths

There are many myths around being safe in the sun and these resources are designed to bust those myths.

Yes, you can get burned on cloudy or cooler days, and yes, tanned or darker skins can still get burned, so being SunSmart (slip, slop, slap, wrap) and covering up is necessary.

Download and use these images in your electronic communications to promote being SunSmart to your people, especially if you have outdoor workers.

The videos are six second GIFs you can download and share or embed into electronic communications, while the posters are available to order in hardcopy for free. 

The downloadable "Let's talk about minimising skin cancer risk" guide is a prompt card people leading workplace or toolbox talks can use to discuss being SunSmart and busting the myths around skin cancer.

Choose the image most appropriate for your workplace, or your SunSmart message, and print double sided so you can show the image to your people as you read from the back.

Also see updated resources about checking your skin for signs of skin cancer.
