UV protective measures must provide the proper level of protection (i.e. of UV absorption, area of coverage, et cetera) and also be accepted by the worker so that they are routinely used. A protective measure (e.g. the application of a sunscreen, wearing a protective hat, garment or spectacle) that is not implemented provides no protection. A recent study (Weber et al 2007) identified preferences of a group of outdoor workers based upon issues such as fit, comfort and appearance rather than the actual physical protection afforded by the protective measures. These results are summarized in the following.
