TRAC has signed a pledge to take action as part of the IOSH championed ‘No Time to Lose’ campaign, working with the industry to raise awareness and beat occupational cancer.
An estimated 86% of malignant melanoma cases in the UK are linked to UV radiation from the sun.
The aim is to assist our Field Technicians with the issue of protection whilst exposed to the sun. Specific PPE with UV protection has been issued, risk assessments conducted and written heat management & action plans created. Awareness has been raised through our monthly safety campaigns, all as part of the measures to protect exposed skin – normally the neck area.
