“Sun and Health” - a prevention project for farmers

Farmers have an increased risk of uv-radiation related skin- and eye-damages. The SVB- prevention project “Sun and Health”should demonstrate the importance of taking protection measures against UV-radiation at work.
The following tools dealing with sun-protection measures were applied throughout 3 years from 2008-2010 : power-point-presentations, interviews, skin- melanin-analyser to check the individual protection time against UV-radiation, information sheets. Demonstration of safety glasses was considered to be important especially for farmers.
The prevention project “Sun and Health” included a particular cooperation with the Austrian agricultural schools. Approximately 10.000 farmers could be involved in our project.
