Ladies and gentlemen of the class of 22, wear sunscreen.

July 14, 2022

The current heatwave may have taken many Brits by surprise – but at Molson we were ready for it! We managed to roll out our nationwide network of sunscreen stations before the hot weather hit, covering all 13 of our service locations throughout Great Britain. 

We take our responsibility for staff welfare seriously, and with many of our mobile service engineers and sales staff working in the open air at least part of the time, we wanted to make sure they were protected from harmful rays. 

The sunscreen stations ensure that all our service location staff have access to broad-spectrum 30 SPF sun protection cream, ensuring they can continue to work safely even on the sunniest days.  

It is well known that prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays can cause skin damage. UVA is associated with skin aging, whereas UVB associated with skin burning. Both UVA and UVB are proven to contribute to the risk for skin cancer.  

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK and rates continue to rise. At least 100,000 new cases are now diagnosed each year, and the disease kills over 2,500 people each year in the UK – that’s seven people every day.*  This is despite it being the most preventable cancer.
