Industrial Dermatitis Claims
Workplace irritants, such as chemicals, dusts and glues, can cause painful skin conditions, which often lead to long-term health problems.
Industrial dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a common work-related skin disease caused by exposure to a number of substances, and can include frequent contact with water. The condition causes skin inflammation and irritation. If you develop dermatitis or eczema later in life, or if your condition significantly worsens, there is a chance it could be caused by your working conditions.
Exposure to certain materials, such as latex, can also lead to hypersensitivity or an allergy to the substance, and cause painful skin conditions. Sometimes, reactions can be so severe that a worker suffers anaphylactic shock and dies.
