Prevention of Sunlight Injuries

Reduction of exposure to direct sunlight is the simplest and most effective protection against sunlight-related injury. When work must be done in direct sunlight, workers should wear protective clothing, including long pants, long-sleeved shirts, gloves, and broad-brimmed hats to shade the face and neck. This may be uncomfortable on hot days, and workers should be careful to drink plenty of fluids and rest as needed so as to avoid heat exhaustion and sunstroke. Sunscreen should also be used.
