Step 2: Implementing sun protection control measures

the introduction and maintenance of protective measures in line with occupational hazard controls.

Once the risk has been assessed, employers and employees should work together to make changes that minimise the
risk of exposure to solar UVR. A comprehensive sun protection program should include the introduction of sun
protective measures in line with occupational hazard controls including:
engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment and clothing.

Refer to your ‘employers guide’ for definitions, advice and guidance when implementing the various sun protection control measures (p.13 – 19).
