What’s your score?

Be smart outside in the sun – cover up
- Newsflash: Getting the hell suntan is not compulsory if you are working outside. In fact, getting one might just kill ya.
- Skin cancer kills more than 350 Kiwis each year, and it’s among the most common cancers diagnosed in NZ. Keep a good eye on your skin, get regular checks and if moles or freckles change or give you concern, see your GP straight away.
- Cover up when working outdoors in New Zealand’s unforgiving sun. Put suncream on (at least SPF 30), and reapply in your breaks. Wear long sleeves and a wide-brimmed hat when the hardhat’s off.
- It’s not just the hot, sunny days you need to worry about, as sunburn can and does happen on overcast days too.
