Things To Know

What is Occupational Dermatitis

Occupational dermatitis is a skin condition caused by contact with something at work that irritates the skin or causes an allergic reaction. Short and long-term exposure at work to sensitisers or irritants, such as solvents, hair dyes, food stuffs and even certain wood dusts can cause occupational dermatitis.

Occupational Dermatitis Symptoms

Initial symptoms include dry and sore skin, usually of the arms and hands depending on which part of the body is exposed to the sensitiser or irritant. These symptoms can develop into blistering and weeping wounds which become very painful.

Employer Liability

Your Employer has a legal duty to try and prevent exposure to sensitisers and irritants and ensure anyone who already has the condition doesn’t get any worse. Employers are under a duty of care to ensure their Employees are not put at any foreseeable risk as far as practicable.

How can I Claim

At Oakwood Solicitors, our Industrial Disease solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with occupational dermatitis claims. If you are suffering from dermatitis, this may have been caused or made worse by your employers’ negligence regarding your safety for which you may be able to receive compensation.
