During the warm-weather months, it is important to take precautions to protect yourself and your employees from the hazards of sun exposure while working outside. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation in sunlight causes premature skin aging, wrinkles, cataracts, and skin cancer. Remember: there are no safe UV rays or suntans.
These precautions are particularly critical for those who burn easily, spend a lot of time outdoors, have freckles or moles, have fair skin, or have light-colored or red hair. Next week, we'll discuss tips for working safely outside in high heat and humidity.
