Formatted Abstract/Summary
Skin cancers in the context of occupation were first identified in the eighteenth century.
There is a significant body of evidence available to identify work-related causation of occupational skin cancers.
A detailed sequential occupational history and possible exposures is essential.
Levels of evidence are provided for causative agents including chemicals, solar and artificial UVR.
The high incidence and prevalence of skin cancer from solar UVR among outdoor workers is well recognized (particularly in Australia) and prevention programs are being delivered and evaluated by governments and industry.
Recently documented risk factors for occupational skin cancer are identified.
Effective prevention programs will include employer policy, worker education, and environmental controls (PPE).
