Employees working outdoors require regular skin cancer screening as they are at risk of developing skin cancer. Outdoor workers are exposed to high levels of ultra-violet rays (UV) throughout the day. Our doctors provide onsite skin cancer screening and skin cancer education programs to help manage the health risk to employees working outdoors.

Cancer can develop in the cells of the skin. Skin cancers are named after the type of cell they start from. Basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer are the two most common types of skin cancer. They are sometimes called non-melanoma skin cancer because they don’t develop from melanocytic cells. The third type of skin cancer is melanoma, which begins in the melanocytes. Other spots that aren’t skin cancer can also appear.
Our doctors and melanographers take the employees’ history and conduct a thorough 20 minute body skin check to identify suspicious moles, skin lesions or spots. Screenings are performed using a dermatoscope to ensure early detection of melanomas and skin cancers.Where needed employees are referred to their GP or a specialist for further assessment and management. Our doctor discusses sun safe strategies with employees.
