UV readings from around Australia

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world

Overexposure to UV (ultraviolet) radiation is the major cause of skin cancer. Currently, two in three Australians will develop skin cancer before the age of 70.

The UV Index provides information about whether sun protection is required or not. Australians are encouraged to use sun protection when the UV Index is three or above.

Why Cancer Council UV Meters?

Many Australians believe they should only be concerned about UV radiation when it feels hot. However, you can’t see or feel UV, and sunburn and skin damage often occurs in cooler temperatures.

Our UV Meters give an accurate, visible measure of UV radiation in real time, making them a vital educational tool.
Signage which provides information on what the UV Index numbers mean, and what action should be taken to protect from skin damage is included with the purchase of a UV Meter. Having an accurate measure of UV radiation assists with duty of care and work health and safety requirements.
