What is Occupational Dermatitis?

Occupational dermatitis is the term given to skin conditions as a result of using chemicals or substances in the workplace. Dermatitis conditions occur when the skin comes into contact with an irritant substance, whether that be on a one off or prolonged period. The contact with irritant causes the skin to show symptoms such as redness, blisters, dryness and itching – all of which can cause cracks in the skin and weeping to occur. Occupational dermatitis can be caused by coming into contact with or prolonged use of any substance or chemical such as:

  • Cleaning products
  • Detergents
  • Fibre glass
  • Lubricants
  • Latex
  • Nickel
  • Dusts
  • Toiletries
  • Adhesives
  • Solvents
