Is my dermatitis caused by my employer?
An employer is responsible for protecting their employees from harm. They must analyse potential risks and take appropriate action so that employees can remain safe when performing their work. To prevent the development of occupational dermatitis, an employer can introduce safety measures such as:
- Protective equipment
- Less harmful substances
- Safety data sheets and training
- Limiting exposure
If an employer breaches their legal obligation and fails to follow health and safety regulations, this can cause occupational dermatitis to develop or worsen.
