||Skin protection in bakers' apprentices
||Feb. 2002, Vol.46, No.2, p.81-85. 26 ref.
||To study skin protection and skin care measures among first year bakers' apprentices, apprentices were assigned either to a skin protection group trained in skin protection measures trained (n=39) or to a control group (n=55) and followed-up during four months. Barrier cream use in the skin protection group reached 100% by the end of the examination period. At that time, only 3.2% of the controls used barrier creams. The level of acceptance of protective gloves (skin protection group 43.3%; controls 32.3%) was considerably lower than that of barrier creams. The initial level of regular skin care was high in both groups (skin protection group 67.6%, controls 61.7%). After the intervention, the acceptance of skin care rose to 88.9% in the skin protection group compared to 68.1% in the controls. It is concluded that high rates in the compliance of skin protection measures can be achieved through intervention.
