25 Aug Occupational Dermatitis in the catering industry
Occupational hand dermatitis in food handlers and kitchen staff is one of the main causes of ill health in the catering industry. Fifty-five percent of all skin problems in the industry are caused by contact with water, soaps and detergents, with a further 40% of cases arising from contact with food. The number of new cases of occupational hand dermatitis every year is twice the average of other industries. Food handlers on sick leave take longer to return to work than employees who suffer skin problems in other professions.
Gloves In A Bottle creates a protective shield with the outer layer of skin which will protect from the damaging effects of regular handwashing and food allergens and irritants. Available from £4.99 at Superdrug.com
