Occupational dermatitis is a skin condition resulting in symptoms from flaky, itchy and irritating skin to soreness, red and inflamed skin which can crack causing bleeding. At its worst dermatitis can be debilitating. Occupational dermatitis usually affects the area with contact to the irritant at work which will most commonly be your hands, but can also affect your face, scalp, feet and arms.
What causes Occupational Dermatitis?
Occupational or industrial dermatitis can be caused by a variety of factors from exposures to chemicals and chemical dust whether liquid based or in the work atmosphere through to being caused even by protective equipment such as latex gloves. What symptoms to expect
The occupational dermatitis compensation claims our solicitors have worked on include localised skin rashes and eczema all over the body, and those suffering with dermatitis can often continue daily tasks with minimal disruption, although others find their dermatitis quite debilitating.
How should I pursue a claim?
It is important to report your condition to your employer and seek medical advice immediately. If you suffer from any of the symptoms of occupational dermatitis, you should not hesitate to contact our team of specialist industrial disease solicitors, who can advice on whether you have a case to make a dermatitis compensation claim, and who can explain this process further.
