Record the name and address of the check location
Record the time of day the shade check is being conducted. If possible, conduct the check either during the middle of the day when UV levels are most intense or at a time of high usage so you can see where the key activity areas are that may require additional shade.
We recommend running a shade check between the hours of 11am and 3pm.
We recommend that the check is done in peak UV periods, generally September to April in southern parts of Australia.
Record level of cloud cover. It is best to conduct your shade check on a clear, sunny day so that the shadow cast by shade trees and structures is clearly defined.
Record the name or description of each site (for example, a school may have different play zones such as the quadrangle, sports fields, adventure playground etc.) Each site requires a separate audit.
