Protection from the sun on site using a UV helmet sticker

Construction work can pose a number of health and safety risks.

A significant proportion of construction work is performed outside, with operatives exposed to different types of weather conditions.

During the summer months, the workforce needs to be aware of both heat and sun exposure, remain protected from direct sunlight and ensure they keep hydrated.

Below is an example of how sites can ensure their workforce are aware of UV rays:

  • A helmet stick sample was trialled which was sensitive to UV light;
  • This sticker would rapidly turn blue when exposed to high levels of UV;
  • The warning let the workforce know when they needed to apply sun cream.
