TAL SpotChecker

Educating Australians to stay skin safe and get regular professional skin checks.

At TAL, we’re committed to helping Australians live a healthy and full life. At least two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 701. It's one of Australia’s most common cancers, but also one of the most easily detectable and preventable.

Now in its fifth year, TAL SpotChecker has been educating Australians about the importance of sun safety by encouraging conversations about the benefits of early detection, and the importance of both self-checking and getting regular, professional skin checks.
