Abstract:
The outdoor nature of some employment can result in increased exposure to UV radiation for workers. As over-exposure to UV radiation is a known cause of injury and disease, employers have legal responsibilities to protect workers.

This monograph highlights, to employers, the risks of a compensation claim and provides scope for implementing policy and procedures to protect workers from overexposure. It looks at statistics from Safework Australia on the number and cost of compensation claims paid in Australia and outlines some real case examples of successful claims. The report is aimed at employers and OHS representatives looking to develop, improve or review their sun protection policy for outdoor workers.
