How can regular workplace skin checks reduce cancer risk in Australia?

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, a stark reality that underscores the critical importance of awareness and proactive skin checks. This alarming prevalence is primarily due to the country's intense exposure to UV radiation, which significantly heightens the risk of developing skin cancer.

Set up a workplace skin check campaign today!

If you would like to set up onsite workplace skin checks for your employees, your first step is to contact us via phone or email. We work with your management team to coordinate the logistics of running skin checks on your premises, including room locations for private consultations and suitable dates for the campaign. One of our booking coordinators also provides posters, flyers and booking sheets to help you manage the campaign.

In-house promotion of the campaign ensures that your employees are aware of the program, its aims, benefits, dates of operation and how to book a consultation. We recommend that you run a workplace skin cancer check campaign on an annual basis. That’s because a yearly program brings new employees into the fold and helps identify any long-term changes in previously identified moles.

So why not enhance your organisation’s work culture by highlighting the health of your employees? It’s a great way to engage your employees and at the same time, provide a caring work environment for everyone.

Workplace skin check program is offered in all of Australia and New Zealand including major cities like Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Adelaide and Gold Coast.

To get the ball rolling, call our team on 03 9867 5003 or send us an email today. We look forward to hearing from you!

Why are workplace skin cancer checks so important?

One of the best ways to increase employee loyalty is to promote a healthy work culture in your organisation. Strong leadership and good role models come to mind but there are other strategies that you might not have considered. One of these is to offer onsite workplace skin cancer checks for your employees.

Workplace skin cancer checks are important for two reasons. First is because it’s a strategy that demonstrates your desire to promote a caring work environment. You might already celebrate innovation and individuality in the workplace. You might already encourage collaboration and teamwork between employees. You might already provide career paths and the autonomy for employees to reach their own goals.

All of these strategies help to develop a healthy work culture, however, onsite corporate skin cancer checks take your dedication to another level. It shows that you care and are serious about the health of your employees. The second reason that skin checks are so important is that it’s predicted to become the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia in 2022.

In industries where employees mainly work outside, for example in construction, landscaping and agriculture, melanoma skin checks are vital to the health of your workforce. However, they are just as important for staff who work inside offices, retail stores and factories, because skin cancer is so prevalent in Australia. This makes early detection essential because the faster we detect skin cancer the greater the chances of a complete recovery.

What’s involved in onsite corporate skin cancer checks?

Onsite corporate skin cancer checks aim to find, identify and monitor any suspicious moles or spots. This includes moles that are new or show signs of increasing in size, becoming raised or changing colour. Each of your employees can attend an onsite private and confidential consultation with a member of our team composed of physicians and general practitioners.

Any moles or areas of skin that are suspicious are either monitored or the employee is referred to a skin cancer specialist for further investigations. Each employee receives a written report which they can take to their GP for further follow-up closer to home.

Whilst the main purpose of onsite corporate skin cancer checks is early diagnosis, our team also prioritises prevention. This involves an understanding of each employee’s personal risk factors as well as the risk factors associated with their type of work. Our highly experienced team discuss these risk factors during their private consultations and develops a strategy to reduce these risks on an individual basis.

Risks of skin cancer in outdoor workers

It’s worth reiterating the importance of onsite corporate skin cancer checks for employees who spend a large part of their working day outdoors. That’s because, under Australia’s Workplace Health and Safety Legislation, employers have a responsibility to secure the health and safety of their employees. The Cancer Council suggests that employers implement a workplace Sun Protection Program to help safeguard the health of their employees. To help you establish this program, they have provided a variety of resources on their website.

Here are a few suggestions that employers can use to protect their outdoor employees from exposure to UV rays:

  • Provide work clothes that cover the arms and legs.
  • Provide a minimum SPF 30 broad-spectrum sunscreen.
  • Provide broad-brimmed hats.
  • Provide portable shade.
  • Provide sunglasses.

You can even include a workplace skin cancer check campaign as part of an overall Sun Protection Program for your employees. It’s a good combination that provides your employees with the UV protection they need outdoors as well as ongoing skin checks.

FAQs

As a part of early detection, it is recommended to complete a skin check once a year.

The health professional will discuss the results with you during your skin check. If they identify an area of concern, they may refer you to a specialist, in this case it can take longer to receive a result.

Skin checks are performed in the same manner for any gender.

Much like other health checks, regular skin checks become more important as you age and may take slightly longer for older individuals as a larger medical history is discussed.

If you wish to seek any follow-up after your skin check, you may visit your local GP or dermatologist.
