Skin diseases are a common work-related illness. In fact, the latest Government figures estimate that over 35,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
Many of these cases turn out to be a condition called contact dermatitis, which is caused by prolonged exposure to substances that dry out the skin. These substances can include detergents, solvents, cements or even water.

Employers have a legal duty to provide protection against prolonged exposure to substances that could cause dermatitis and to provide information on any risks involved. If they do not, and you develop dermatitis as a result, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
