Sunguarding Outdoors – Raising awareness

Being active outdoors is important for our health and wellness, as is being adequately sun protected. Sunguarding Outdoors is a NEW campaign for people either working or enjoying the outdoors, groups, and clubs, to help keep everyone sun safe.

Some really useful information can be found here which gives details of a free online course for protecting people working in the outdoors and it’s also accredited by Institute for Outdoor Learning.

For those working with primary school children this site also offers people the chance to sign up to the Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code.  This is a free accreditation campaign for all groups and individuals working with children outdoors.

Make sure your risk assessments are updated to reflect changes in temperature when taking customers out on activities.
