The HSE’s Guidance leaflet on “Preventing contact dermatitis and urticaria at work”  has been simplified and streamlined in this 2015 revision.

The leaflet explains how you, as an employer, can protect your employees from skin problems known as contact dermatitis and urticaria. It will also be useful to employees and their representatives.

The leaflet will help you identify what tasks and substances may cause harm, and introduces practical steps for controlling the risks. The information it contains will help you comply with the law.
