||Chromate eczema is still one of the most important occupational skin diseases in the German construction industry. Primary prevention can be improved by partially substituting chromates by ferrous sulfate, a solution which is already being practiced. Moreover, nitrile-coated rubber gloves are suitable for protecting the skin when working with cement products. A survey also indicates that 60% of the persons questioned found that nitrile-coated rubber gloves are more comfortable, longer lasting and ensure better protection against humidity than traditional leather gloves.
