There are many allergens in the workplace that can cause irritation to the skin with resultant dermatitis, ulceration, pre- cancerous changes and allergic reactions.
COSHH data will enable you to identify any potential risks to the skin from compounds and chemicals used in the workplace and the conditions of the working environment.
If this is the case, then it is important to minimise exposure to any employees.
This can be achieved by avoidance of contact with any chemicals, protection using PPE, good hygiene and moisturisers/ sunscreen and checking for early signs of skin changes.
We are able to offer skin surveillance with a screening questionnaire and examination of the skin by our trained nurses and doctors.
We are also able to train some of your employees to be able to check the skin of their colleagues.Please contact us if you would like to discuss training options.
