Is Your Workplace ready for Summer?

Just a quick reminder that taking practical steps to minimise UV radiation for any outdoor workers is also part of the Health and Safety in Employment Act.

Four areas for consideration are:

  • Job organisation
  • Shade
  • Personal protection
  • Education

So remember if employees are working outdoors consider options during the 11am to 2pm period, review current shade protection and make sure employees have hats and sunscreen.
