Cover Up, Mate!

Burn, baby burn!

Or, don’t.

Pink, stinging skin isn’t exactly what you need when you’re trying to relax after a hard day of graft. And definitely not when your other half is chasing you round with the aloe vera gel…

Sun exposure is actually a really big problem for tradespeople, for the very simple reason that they work outside a lot.

That’s why we’re backing the NHS’ new campaign, ‘Cover up, mate!’

It’s all about looking out for others on-site and making sure nobody gets too pink.

Here are some quick tips to help:

• Don’t just think about sun protection in the height of summer. There were high levels of UV as early as April this year
• Try to minimise sun exposure between 11am and 3pm – if you have to be on-site, make sure you cover up and look out for one another
• Throw some shade (or just seek some out)
• Make sure you never burn
• Use at least factor 15 sun cream
