What is sun safety?
Main Page Content
Sun safety refers to the measures a person can take to be safe while outdoors in the sun. Everyone can (and should) practice sun safety. This can include active precautions such as the use of sunscreen, or less direct measures such as seeking shade to stay out of the sun’s rays. Workplaces, including schools, can also have policies in place that target sun safety. Sun safety helps everyone enjoy the outdoors, while preventing any negative health effects of overexposure to ultraviolet radiation.
