The American Academy of Dermatology estimates that more than 8,500 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. The most effective way for workers to protect themselves from contracting skin cancer is to practice sun safety when outdoors.

A new survey commissioned by Deb Group and conducted online by Harris Poll examines the sunscreen habits among employees ages 18 and older who work outdoors at least half the time. The study found that only 18 percent of outdoor workers always wear sunscreen at work.
