Outdoor workers have 3 times greater risk of skin cancer

Approximately 1.5 million Canadians are exposed to sun at work and around 7,000 skin cancers were attributed to occupational exposure to the sun in 2014.  Additionally, outdoor workers have a 2.5 to 3.5 times greater risk of skin cancer than indoor workers. The results are released in a collaborative study of the Occupational Cancer Research Centre (OCRC) and the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA). See more details, please click here.
