Incolink's educational Toolboxes support the health and wellbeing of workers. These sessions provide workers with practical steps to improve their overall wellbeing.
More information on these toolboxes is listed below.
Our SunSmart Toolbox has been built in partnership with the Cancer Council's SunSmart team, and you can find additional information about how to protect yourself while working in the sun here.
The Incolink team can come to site and deliver 15–20-minute educational toolboxes on one of the below topics:
Almost all skin cancers are due to exposure to UV from the sun. Working onsite puts workers at high risk of melanoma and cancer.
Partnering with the Cancer Council’s SunSmart team, we talk about the high risk of sun damage associated with working outdoors and the steps workers can take to help prevent the risk.
Hear from Cancer Council Victoria’s SunSmart team about how to work safely in the sun, during the session we will cover:
- The five forms of sun protection
- How to check your skin for skin cancer
- What to do if you notice a new or changing spot
Throughout the toolbox we talk about signs of mental distress, what to look for and what workers can do if they notice these signs in themselves or those around them. The purpose of this toolbox is to increase workers general mental health awareness.
