Occupational Dermatitis Compensation In Scotland

Occupational Dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin caused by the working environment or by skin contact with a damaging substance. 

The symptoms and seriousness of the condition vary widely. Symptoms usually begin with redness and irritation, and occasionally, swelling. 

Occupational dermatitis is one of the most widespread causes of ill health and affects workers in many industry sectors, including food processing and especially catering.

Nationally, across all industries, an estimated 84,000 people have dermatitis caused or made worse by their work.

Common Causes :- 

  • Water, Soaps and Detergents
  • Foods including sugar, flour, dough and citrus fruits
  • Coins
  • Rubber Latex
  • Chemicals
  • Cleaners
  • Dyes
  • Plants
  • Oils

Employers have a duty to protect their employees against the risks of dermatitis especially if their industry is a known risk employer.
