Assessment Standards

This is an H3

The assessment determines your workplaces’s sun safety status by asking questions about your workplace's policies in four categories. For each category, Sun Safe Colorado has developed a standard that takes into consideration feasibility, cost, best practices for skin cancer prevention and overall impact on employee sun safety. In some categories, it is not possible to exceed the standard.
