Melanoma is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australian men aged 25-49 years and second most common cancer in women aged 25-49 years, after breast cancer. Approximately two in three Australians will be diagnosed with melanoma or other types of skin cancer by the time they are 70 years old.
These age groups may represent a significant proportion of your existing workforce.
A world-first study led by University of Sydney has found that Australians aged 18-40 years who were regular users of sunscreen in childhood reduced their risk of developing melanoma by 40 percent, compared to those who rarely used sunscreen. It recommended that everyone over the age of 25 should get regular skin checks.
For this reason, onsite skin screening programs are an exceptionally popular workplace health and wellbeing initiative.
Work Health Professionals have an excellent team of Skin Screening Practitioners based in Perth and South West WA.
