With summer finally here, it’s time for a quick check-up on those moles.
NZ has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world (http://goo.gl/007glM). However, 90% of cases can be cured if caught early. The image shown may help, but check out the Mayo Clinic’s more detailed presentation at http://goo.gl/bxUO08.
WorkSafe also has a fact sheet on melanoma here: http://goo.gl/3xnqQJ (good for noticeboards?). Their “Guidance notes for the protection of workers from solar ultraviolet radiation” explains duties etc: https://bit.ly/2QTgwVd. NIWA has daily UV forecasts here: http://goo.gl/g6JX3L. Having said all that, roll on summer!
