Skin disease caused by work practices is one of the most common industrial diseases and affects many employees in the UK every year.

Occupationally-induced skin disease is when an employee comes into regular contact with a specific substance within the workplace. It can occur when employees come into contact with substances including chemicals, water, solvents, powders, cleaning agents etc. The most affected parts of the body are the hands and arms although this will largely depend on the type of job involved.

The most common types of skin conditions are eczema and dermatitis where symptoms involve itchy and cracking skin which can lead to bleeding and infections.

“The condition not only affects the employee at work but can also have a devastating impact on life outside work.”

Legislation, namely The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1994, has been passed to protect workers. These Regulations ensure that employers must carry out assessments of the risks to which employees may be exposed and to take steps to ensure that their employees are properly protected.

If you believe that you  have a skin condition that has been caused by your work, you may be entitled to claim compensation.  Legal aid is not available for these types of claims and we therefore offer assistance under a No Win No Fee Agreement.
