Health Surveillance is required under the COSHH regulations 2002 though it is never an alternative to proper control of exposure. A.B. Health Ltd can assist you with your skin surveillance / management programme.
Occupational skin disease is important and a common health problem. Repeated skin irritation or skin sensitisation can lead to dermatitis. If detected early enough and worker’s exposure to the trigger substances are reduced, dermatitis may be cured or less severe. Left untreated it may become irreversible and even a small exposure may trigger a bad reaction.
