With another heatwave on the way at the end of the month, Marley, the UK’s leading roof system manufacturer, is reminding roofers of the importance of staying ‘Safe in the Sun’, whilst supporting the Melanoma Fund.
Daniel Redfern, Marketing Manager at Marley said, ‘Contractors working for long periods of time outdoors, often in direct sunshine and intense heat, are at risk from sun damage. So, with our Safe in the Sun campaign, we aim to provide useful, no-nonsense advice to make sure all our customers are aware of the potential risks, and are properly protected.’
Support for roofers, support for the Melanoma Fund
‘We encourage roofers to cover up, use sunscreen and stay hydrated with the help of our Safe in the Sun kit, featuring a Marley-branded T shirt, sunscreen and water bottle – everything you need to stay safe.
‘What’s more, for every roofer requesting a Safe in the Sun kit from our website, we will donate £1 to the Melanoma Fund.’
Michelle Baker, CEO, Melanoma Fund said, ‘Those who work outdoors, such as roofing contractors, really are on the front line when it comes to sun damage, including the risk of melanoma. Many can also underestimate the importance of sun protection, so we’re pleased to see Marley taking the issue seriously, giving advice to the industry to ensure workers are educated and encouraged to create better habits. We are very grateful for its generous support of our work.’
