Sun Protection Tips for CDL Drivers
- Wear Sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to all exposed skin. Reapply it every two hours, especially during long hauls. Pay attention to commonly overlooked areas like your ears and the back of your neck.
- Cover Up: Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, and a wide-brimmed hat to shield your skin from direct sunlight. Opt for lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics to stay cool and comfortable.
- Sunglasses: Invest in high-quality sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection. This will safeguard your eyes from harmful rays and reduce glare.
- Sunshades or Tinted Windows: If possible, install sunshades on your truck’s windshield and side windows. Alternatively, get your windows professionally tinted to reduce glare and UV exposure.
- Time Your Drives: Plan your routes to minimize driving during peak sun hours, typically from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you must drive during these times, take regular breaks in shaded areas.
- Hydration: Stay well-hydrated, especially when driving in hot weather. Dehydration can worsen the effects of sun exposure, so drink water regularly.
- Use Ventilation: Use your vehicle’s air conditioning or ventilation system to keep the cabin cool. A comfortable temperature reduces the risk of heat-related illnesses.
- Keep Your Dashboard Cool: Use dashboard covers and windshield shades to prevent the steering wheel and other surfaces from becoming scorching hot.
- Routine Skin Checks: Regularly examine your skin for unusual moles or changes in appearance. If you notice any concerns, consult a dermatologist promptly.
- Rest Stops: Take frequent breaks to stretch your legs and get some shade. Use this time to reapply sunscreen and hydrate.
