What to LookFor &
Skin Cancer
Moles, Birthmarks, & Discolorations

• Change in texture

• Irregular outline

• Larger than a pencil eraser

Skin Cancer is a Billion Dollar Industry
 Since 2006 there has been a 126.2% increase in
skin cancer diagnosis and treatment - $3.6 billion
to $8.1 billion.

 An estimated 11,000 cases of skin cancer could be

avoided if properprevention is introduced.

 For every dollar spent on prevention $2 can be

saved in diagnosis and treatment.

Skin Cancer Prevention
See your dermatologist or physician
every year for a professional skin exam.
Examine your skin head to toe every
month. Pay attention to your body, the
earlier the abnormal growth is treated
the less harm it willcause.

Heat Stress

sunburn. Having a sunburn reduces your body's ability to rid itself of heat. They
recommend applying a mineral based Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30+ before
heading outside.

Surgeon General Issues SkinCancer
Warning July 30th 2014
The U.S. Surgeon General issued a “Call to Action” describing
Skin Cancer as a “major public health problem.”

He also stated “We have public health issues, and we want

people to contribute their part to making things better.
Examples include employers who have OUTDOOR WORKERS.
What can they do to decrease the amount of UV exposure to
their workers? Its about the induction of shady areas,
educating their workers and making sure they use protection.
Its hats, its SUNSCREEN.”

We have to change the social view that tanned skin is good

and healthy when in reality tanned skin is damaged skin.
In conclusion we believe the
outside worker should have

A 4 inch brimmed hat

Wear Clothes with UPF of 25-39
Wear UV400 Sunglasses
Provide a Full Broad Spectrum Physical Sunscreen
