Abstract This manual is divided into two parts. The first part presents detailed guidelines for evaluating the degree of permanent disability resulting from occupational skin diseases. It proposes a classification of skin diseases as a function of the causal agent as well as a diagnosis approach, and lists the main occupations which present a risk of skin disease as well as the causal substances or agents.
