UV Exposure & Heat Illness Guide

A joint venture between Sports Medicine Australia’s Smartplay and the Cancer Council’s Sunsmart has produced a UV Exposure and Heat Illness Guide. The guide provides up to date information on UV exposure and heat illness, tips for creating, reviewing and implementing local guidelines, a modifiable UV exposure and heat illness checklist and real-life examples.

This is a great resource for all Associations and clubs to have on file.

This guide was developed as part of a partnership between SunSmart and Smartplay. It is supported by the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth), the Department of Planning and Community Development (Sport and Recreation Victoria), Cancer Council Victoria and Sports Medicine Australia Victorian Branch
