||The primary objectives of this study were: to identify a range of low cost, practicable and acceptable interventions to reduce the incidence of occupational dermatitis in the UK printing industry; to carry out preliminary testing of the acceptability and efficacy of these interventions on a small scale; to use these preliminary tests to provide information on the variability of the outcomes, which would aid sample size calculations for a future large scale intervention trial; to develop appropriate methodologies for the identification of intervention strategies for use in other occupational and non-occupational situations. This involved a review of the literature of preventative interventions studies in the workplace and the identification of risk reduction interventions specific to the industry through qualitative research, using a series of observational studies and focus groups.
