Lawyer in Sutton-on-the-Forest
Your employer has a legal duty to make sure that you work in a safe environment. They are supposed to protect your health and safety, as well as prevent 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.
It’s not necessary to suffer these conditions
In most cases, dermatitis can be avoided if the correct protective clothing is worn. The condition 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:
- Acids and alkalis;
- Some plants;
- Chemicals, such as disinfectants;
- Detergents and soaps;
- Antiseptics and antibacterial;
- Perfumes and other ingredients in toiletries and cosmetics;
- Oils used in machinery; and
You may well have dermatitis if your skin is becoming red, inflamed, blistery, dry and thickened.
It can be caused by your work
For the most part, dermatitis cases are caused by the victim’s work. Some of the people more at risk include:
- Hairdressers and beauticians;
- Farm workers;
- Fishery workers;
- Engineers and construction workers;
- Healthcare professionals;
- Printers and painters;
- Cleaners and housekeepers; and
- Food preparers, cooks and caterers.
You may be able to make a personal injury claim using an injury lawyer in Sutton-on-the-Forest if you contract dermatitis, or any other condition, because of the negligence of your employer.
