Queensland, Australia

- New research shows that people who work in offices could have a greater risk of developing melanoma than people who work outdoors, the couriermail.com reports.

Researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) have revealed that they are finding more instances of melanoma in office workers than people who work outdoors, prompting business such as Suncorp Bank to send company-wide e-mails cautioning staff to practice skin cancer prevention, according to couriermail.com.

Suncorp is teaming up with QIMR for a study aimed at determining the attitudes and behaviors of office workers towards skin cancer prevention, such as indoor tanning use, skin cancer check-ups, skin cancer treatment, sun exposure and vitamin D intake. About 5,000 Suncorp employees will participate in the study.
