Title Prevention and compensation of occupational skin diseases
Original title Réparation et prévention des dermatoses professionnelles [in French]
Bibliographic information Toxicologie-Pathologie professionnelle, 3rd Quarter 2006, No.152, 10p. 9 ref.
Abstract Occupational skin diseases often have important consequences for the employment of affected persons, which makes it essential to ensure their compensation in cases where preventive measures are not effective. Preventive measures against occupational skin diseases include collective measures such as the elimination of the allergen or irritant, but also a series of personal hygiene measures adapted to each task which need to be validated by the users themselves if they are not to go unheeded. Compensation and rehabilitation measures are complex given the wide range of approved occupational diseases and types of compensation, which are reviewed in this article.
