SunSmart sample policies

A comprehensive SunSmart policy provides clear, evidence-based guidelines that address sun protective behaviours, environments and learning to minimise UV exposure and skin cancer risk.

Ideally staff, children and families are involved in the development and review of the SunSmart policy. It should be readily available so everyone can ensure they have a good understanding of how this important health issue is being addressed.

Please copy the sample policies or use them to guide the development of your own sun protection policy.

Please note: Some people (such as transplant recipient patients, people with compromised immune systems and genetic skin cancer risk) are at high risk of skin cancer and may require additional sun protection and early detection strategies specific to their health needs. Please consult your doctor for specific health advice.
