Course overview

Dermatitis can be a life-altering condition. Occupations with high dermatitis rates range from engineering and manufacture to hairdressing, catering, florists and the health sector. Dermal exposure resulting in potential harm to the rest of the body occurs across all sectors. Measures to prevent harm are often straightforward if they are correctly applied.

The course will cover:

  • Health and safety law applying to skin exposure
  • The structure and function of the skin
  • Dermatitis, other skin diseases and other risks
  • Exposure pathways and COSHH assessments for skin exposure
  • Dermal exposure monitoring
  • Reducing skin contact to control risk
  • Selecting gloves and other PPE to protect skin
  • Skin care programmes and health surveillance

Who should attend?

Managers, supervisors and staff representatives will benefit from this course, particularly if they are in industries where dermatitis is prevalent. Safety officers and other health and safety professionals can also expand their knowledge of the subject without attending longer courses for formal qualifications
