Health and Safety Resource Centre

UV radiation is a known cause of workplace injury and disease. Therefore, in meeting WHS legislative requirements all businesses employing outdoor workers should address UV radiation as a workplace hazard and develop and implement control measures (including PPE) to ensure that workers are protected.

This Toolbox Talk Topic will discuss the hazards associated with UV exposure and methods for risk reduction. This topic is suitable for any workplace with outdoor workers.

Once the Toolbox Talk is completed and employees have been consulted, and had their views heard, records of discussions and actions should be recorded in the Toolbox Talk Record Form.
