||Dermatitis in hairdressers. (II). Management and prevention
||May 1994, Vol.30, No.5, p.265-270. 10 ref.
||Factors contributing to dermatitis in hairdressers are discussed. These include: sensitizing and irritant capacities of some hair-cosmetic ingredients; unsafe packaging which causes contamination of the hands, work tables and instruments with hazardous chemicals; absence of protection with adequate gloves; ignorance of procedures for the safe handling of chemicals. A strategy is proposed based on improvement of the safety of ingredients and packaging, use of vinyl gloves and introduction of safe procedures. The value of pre-employment screening is discussed. Part I of this article is in press.
