In a recent study, the American Academy of Dermatology estimates that more than eighty-five hundred people in the U.S. are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. The most effective way for workers to protect themselves from contracting skin cancer is to practice sun safety when outdoors. A new survey commissioned by Deb Group, and conducted online by Harris Poll among U.S. adults ages 18 and older who work outdoors at least half the time, determines how often outdoor workers wear sunscreen at work. The study found that only eighteen percent of outdoor workers always wear sunscreen at work. The study found that more than half of outdoor workers say they always or sometimes see a need to wear sunscreen at work. However, seventy-one percent of outdoor workers say their employers don’t provide sunscreen to them for use at work. Perhaps that is why fifty-fine percent of outdoor workers always or sometimes bring their own sunscreen to work.
