Protect yourself this Summer

summerWith more than 3.3 million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer and highly treatable when detected early.

Here are some things you can do to help prevent skin cancer:

• Seek the shade, especially between 10am and 4pm.
• Avoid tanning and UV tanning beds.
• Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
• Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
• Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every 2 hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating.
• Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of 6 months.
• Examine your skin head-to-toe every month.
• See your physician every year for a professional skin exam.

Safety Check: Working Ergonomically Part 2 of 2

By making ergonomics a part of your routine at work (and home) you can keep your body free of strain and pain.

Check your workstation to make sure you have:
• Chairs with proper lumbar and arm support. Desk chairs should be adjustable for height.
• Your feet are flat on the ground or on a footrest.
• The viewing distance from your eyes to the monitor is at least 18 inches.
• Your keyboard and mouse are at approximately elbow height.
• Lighting is sufficient enough that you don’t have to strain, but not too bright where glare becomes an issue.
• Short breaks from the screen to rest your eyes. You should look away from your screen for a short time, every 15-20 minutes.
• Breaks to get up and stretch/move around to keep your blood flowing.
