  1. 1. About Skcin & Sun Safe Workplaces Anthony Hubbard Technical Director
  2. 2.  Skcin are a national Skin Cancer Charity (based in Nottingham)  Set up in 2006 by local family following death of their loved one  Driven to raise awareness of UK’s most common, yet largely preventable cancer  Have developed many high profile campaigns & work with large commercial organisations to ensure Sun Safety message gets to as many people as possible! About Skcin The Karen Clifford Skin Cancer Charity
  3. 3. Skcin have a strong belief in the prevention of skin cancer through education – particularly among ‘At Risk Groups’, closely followed by early detection! Education, Education, Education
  4. 4. SSW - Why Should I get involved?  UV is a known carcinogen & employees that work outdoors during daytime hours have a higher risk of developing skin cancer.  UV radiation should be considered an occupational hazard for people who work outdoors.  Employers have a duty of care to educate their employees about the health implications the sun can have, the importance of appropriately protecting their skin and regularly checking their skin for signs of change.  Employers have a duty to ensure the provision of appropriate protection from the sun.
  5. 5. Benefits and cost savings associated with the provision of sun protection and appropriate education:  Fewer absence days caused by the associated conditions of sunburn  A healthier and better-informed workforce  Reduced risk to employees of the UK’s most common and fastest rising cancer, caused by long-term exposure to the sun.  Due Diligence – by providing a healthy workplace environment, employers can protect themselves from claims and litigation. SSW - Why Should I get involved?
  6. 6. The Facts  Skin cancer is the UK’s most common cancer with 115,000 new cases in the UK each year!  Approx. 80% of cases are caused by over exposure to UV from the sun or sun bed usage – so are preventable with education!  The incident rate of malignant melanoma (MM) has doubled in the last 10 years. Experts estimate rates of skin cancer will double every 10-20 years if nothing is done!  MM is the most common cancer in 15-34’s!  Up to 80% of an individuals lifetime exposure probably occurs before the age of 21!  The effects of UV light is cumulative and irreversible to the eyes and skin!
  7. 7. The Facts (CRUK 2011 Statistics) • 13,348 people in the UK were diagnosed with MM (37 every day!); rate increased > 5 fold since the mid 70’s • There were 2,209 deaths from MM (6 per day!) • 88.2% of adult MM SC patients survived their cancer for 5 yrs or more (2005 – 2009); 83.6% men, 91.6% women • > 102,000 cases of NMSC were registered in 2011; registration is incomplete, with an estimated 30 – 50% BCC and 30% SCC going unrecorded • Most common sites: • Men – chest or back • Women – legs
  8. 8. Skin Cancer – the Asbestosis of the 21st Century!
  9. 9. MEP’s call to action to protect outdoor workers • Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Europe. • There is a growing body of research linking exposure to UV radiation in outdoor workers to the rapidly increasing incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer in Europe. • Outdoor workers are at a: 43% higher risk of basal cell carcinoma, and at a 77% higher risk of squamous cell carcinoma.
  10. 10. EU Recommendations…….. • 5 instances of AK within one year • Field skin cancer • 1 x SCC • 1 x BCC • 1x MM What does constitute an occupational problem?
  11. 11. What do we need to consider for outdoor workers?  Intermittent exposure to sun light is associated with increased risk of developing skin cancer  Sun burn increases your risk of skin cancer.  Over the last twenty-five years, the incidence of malignant melanoma has increased more than for any other major cancer in the UK. The male rates have increased almost five times, while the female rates have more than tripled.  The H&SAWA requires employers to identify hazards (The Sun), evaluate risks and provide Information, Instruction, Training and Supervision in order to mitigate risks.  Best practice companies also provide screening.
