As part of their duty of care towards employees, employers are supposed to protect their health and safety, and try to ensure they do not contract any industrial conditions. One of the conditions often caused through work is dermatitis, a type of skin problem that can be painful and distressing because of the irritation that accompanies it.
Injury lawyers in St Pierre du Bois say it’s not necessary
Most cases of dermatitis can be avoided if the correct protective clothing is worn. In the majority of cases, it is caused by something that irritates your skin and most often it is the hands and face that are affected. There are some substances that are more likely to cause someone a problem and these include:
- Oils used in machinery
- Acids and alkalis
- Some plants
- Chemicals, such as disinfectants
- Detergents and soaps
- Antiseptics and antibacterial
- Perfumes and other ingredients in toiletries and cosmetics
If your skin is becoming red, inflamed, blistery, dry and thickened, you may well have dermatitis and need to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in St Pierre du Bois.
The majority of dermatitis cases are caused by the victim’s job, some of the more susceptible employments being:
- Cleaners and housekeepers
