||A questionnaire survey of employers and employees in six electroplating establishments in the United Kingdom revealed a lack of compliance with statutory requirements regarding the control of substances hazardous to health; deficiencies were evident in assessment, control and health surveillance. Many employees had work-related skin problems, typically dermatitis. In general, workers were ignorant about the hazards of the materials handled, and did not always use adequate personal protective equipment, or adopt a skin care programme. There is a need for better training and more attention to skin care in these workshops.
