||Occupational skin diseases can be avoided if the employer adopts a plan of specific measures aimed at protecting the skin before work starts and providing proper care at the end of the working day. Such an approach has two advantages: it ensures that workers have a healthy skin, and it costs little in comparison with curative measures in the event of lesions. Following a brief introduction on the structure and functions of the skin, preventive measures to be adopted and various types of topics for skin care and protection are presented. Advice for implementing a skin protection plan within the enterprise is also included.
