Workplace Safety

Australia has one of the highest skin
cancer rates in the world and at least
2 in every 3 Australians will develop
skin cancer before the age of 70.

Workers who spend a significant
amount of time driving as part of their
job will also have a higher than
average risk of developing skin cancer.

The car’s side windows, in particular,
block most UVB rays but do not filter
out UVA rays as effectively as the
windscreen, and the car’s sun visor
doesn’t protect the driver’s face
adequately when the sun shines from
the side.

These UVA rays penetrate deep into the
skin to cause premature skin ageing
and can lead to skin cancer.

Sun hats, which play an important role
in providing UV protection for outdoor
work, aren’t practical for drivers and
get in the way when driving.

The Joopy Sun Shade fits to the car door
in seconds and provides UPF50+
protection for the driver’s face and neck
when the sun shines from the side. It
even stays in place when the side
window is wound down for fresh air.

Unlike window tinting, the Joopy Sun
Shade does not affect the driver’s vision
in low light conditions and is the safer
option to avoid accidents*, not to
mention the cost savings!

Use a Joopy Sun Shade in the car
as part of your workplace
sun protection strategy.


The RACV advises against window tinting
