Occupational Skin Disease

Find out about the risks, legal requirements, and prevention against occupational skin disease.

Occupational skin disease is a serious health issue that often goes unreported in the workplace. After exposure to certain materials, usually over a long period of time, employees can suffer with skin conditions such as occupational dermatitis, which can often be prevented. Dermatitis isn't just dry itchy skin - in severe cases, the skin can become infected, and the end result can be career or even life changing.
