Keyfix launches Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign with Competition
Posted on 27 Jun 2022
To make construction workers aware of sun protection on building sites and the dangers of skin cancer, Keyfix is running a Rays Awareness campaign and offering fantastic prizes in its weekly Summer Song Quiz.
With UV rays at their highest between May and September, the Keyfix Rays Awareness Campaign highlights why construction workers cannot afford to be complacent as they account for 44% of occupational skin cancer diagnosis and 42% of occupational skin cancer deaths each year – which equates to 21 deaths and 101 diagnoses.1
Keyfix is urging construction workers to keep their skin healthy for the long haul by keeping a shirt or top on when working outdoors, wearing a hat, covering-up and using sunscreen.
- apply sunscreen before you leave for work.
- reapply every two hours.
- apply two teaspoons of sunscreen to cover your head, arms and back
- Stay hydrated
The Keyfix video offers tips to staying site safe in the sun.
