Exposure Reduction

The Sun Safety at Work Canada project has developed a series of resources and tools that workplaces can use to identify, assess, and control occupational exposure to solar radiation.

Our team has performed a detailed scan of exposure control resources and assembled a compilation of key publications and resources. These are organized by type of exposure (environmental or occupational) and by specificity (general or carcinogen-specific). Please visit our Exposure Reduction Resources page to view.

We also recommend exploring the Prevention Policies Directory, a freely-accessible online tool offering information on policies related to cancer and chronic disease prevention. Providing summaries of the policies and direct access to the policy documents, the Directory allows users to search by carcinogen, risk factor, jurisdiction, geographical location, and document type. The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer has also developed a policy pack of evidence-informed ultraviolet radiation policy actions for local and provincial/territorial governments. For questions about these resources, please contact a member of the Prevention Team at the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer at
