Occupational skin disease – a toxicological perspective training webinar

The skin is one of the most common routes by which chemical exposure can occur, both in the workplace and in the home. Furthermore, skin irritation and allergy are probably two of the most common effects reported in the occupational setting resulting in sickness absence.

Although the focus of this webinar will be on two of the most commonly known occupational skin conditions, irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis, it will also cover other conditions which are associated with chemical exposure (e.g. skin cancer, folliculitis and acne).

It will also cover risk assessment for skin exposures and management of these effects in the workplace. This will cover the use of control measures (and a section on the choice of appropriate gloves, permeation rates, breakthrough times, assigned protection factors, etc)


The following will be covered during the session,

    • Anatomy and function of the skin – This will cover the structure of the skin, its main functions and importantly why it is such an important barrier to the external environment
    • Skin diseases associated with chemical exposure – allergic and irritant contact dermatitis, contact urticaria, skin cancer together with examples of chemicals which cause these types of effect.
    • Risk assessment for skin exposures – The approach which should be used in the assessment of potential harm arising from dermal contact
    • Managing skin exposure risks in the workplace – this will cover the ways in which exposure may occur, the use of appropriate control measures and selection of correct PPE.

Who Should Attend

    • Technical/scientific staff who work in a regulatory department
    • Authors of safety data sheets (SDS) and/or extended safety data sheets (eSDS)
    • Occupational hygienists
    • HSE staff
    • Occupational health advisors
    • Chemical risk assessment professionals
    • Anyone who would like to learn more about how chemicals cause harm to the skin, and how these can be managed in the workplace
