The good news is, 95% of skin cancers can be successfully treated if detected early, so encourage your employees to take a few minutes out of their day for a skin check.
The Skin Check is offered at two levels:
The experienced Dermatoscopists use a dermatoscope (a specialised hand-held skin instrument which has x 12 magnification) to examine areas exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Employees are also educated on preventative measures, such as how to conduct a self-examination to identify new or changing lesions and sun damage and how to differentiate between a mole and the possible signs and symptoms of melanoma, and other skin cancers. If further follow-up is required, the employee will be referred on to their chosen GP or specialist.
We recommend introducing the Skin Check service in conjunction with a group education session on sun safety or cancer awareness to further help inform and educate employees.
Our solutions are best suited to organisations with 1000 or more employees. Submit your details below to request more information on this solution. A member of our workplace solutions team will be in touch to discuss your requirements.
