Life insurer TAL has launched its SpotChecker program for the eighth consecutive year in 2023, encouraging more Australians to embrace skin safety.  

Insights from the research over the last seven years show a slight uptick in people self-checking for signs of skin cancer. 

However, there are still 19 per cent of Australians who have never done a self-check of their skin, and 38 per cent either have not done a check within the last three months or cannot remember when their last one was. 

The program includes resources and self-check guides.
