||Analysis of data from The Danish Register of Occupational Diseases showed that nearly all occupational skin diseases were eczematous in nature (98%). Most cases were in the younger age group, women predominated over men and the dominant type of occupational eczema was irritant. Skin diseases (eczemas) ranked first among both recognized and compensated cases and were the most expensive. The data in the Register may provide a basis for establishing the most relevant preventive activities.
