Skin cancer prevention
Farmers and agricultural workers have a high risk of skin cancer because they usually work outdoors. Protect yourself from the sun and reduce your risk of skin cancer, by wearing a broad brimmed hat, sunglasses, long sleeved shirts, long pants and sunscreen. Avoid working outdoors in the middle of the day if possible when ultraviolet rays are at their highest.
Farmers are also at risk of eye damage from too much sunlight while working long hours outdoors. Always wear sunglasses fitted with side arms and sun hats to protect your eyes and to reduce the risk of facial skin cancers.
You also have a duty to protect any workers from the effects of the sun.
