Introduction Hand Care 1. Introduction Skin Care in the workplace is a seriously neglected area. There is little awareness of the importance of good skin care and very little knowledge of the causes and terrible consequences of dermatitis. In the nineties reported cases of dermatitis out-number cases of silicosis and defective hearing encountered in Germany. In South Africa cases of dermatitis are radically under reported and the lack of focus in this field could potentially be heading us for a major problem 2. Effects of the disease Contact dermatitis generally takes a number of years of constant exposure to workplace substances to manifest. This slow development of the condition is one of the main reasons for our current attitude to prevention. The full impact of the disease is only experienced once an individual contracts it. • Social effects Firstly, on the personal side, the intense discomfort and social stigma associated with skin disease is a horrible reality for those involved. Contact dermatitis is incredibly uncomfortable in that it is known to cause an itch which is so consuming that persons afflicted have expressed the wish to almost scratch until they “hit bone”. This rather radical desire is hopefully an indication of how extreme the discomfort really is. On the social side, dermatitis is an unattractive disease. Most contact dermatitis encountered in industry is present on the hands. • Effects in the workplace Dermatitis also has a great impact on the working life of effected worker. For a full recovery the skin needs anything from between four weeks to eight weeks. In many cases contact dermatitis evolves into allergic dermatitis and does not allow the individual to return to their former occupation. What is often experienced it that the person on return can no longer work with the substances that he has been working with before the dermatitis • Suitability When choosing a protection product it is vital that the product is suited to the type of hazard that is being encountered. In many cases the choice of protection product is determined solely on price and often purchased by a person not even aware of the exact application. The incorrect choice of product can in fact assist the contaminant in getting into contact with the skin. • Breakthrough time The protection product should be able to provide in the region of 4 hours of protection. It is important to remember that protection creams are merely creams and not gloves, so to expect a longer period of protection is not realistic. Furthermore, if a product offers less protection time then correct application of it may interfere with working times. Four hours seems to fit in well with tea times and lunch times, making reapplication effortless. • ph value The ph of the product should ideally be between 5 and 7. • Harmful substances to plant processes Make sure that your protection product does not contain substances that might interfere or affect your production process. • Proof of Efficacy Reputable manufacturers of protection products will be able to supply proofs of efficacy. A proof of efficacy is scientific data proving that the product will protect the wearer against the type of substances that it claims. When choosing a system to prevent skin disease in industry choose one that is going to last and that is adaptable to all your needs. Choose a product and company that is a leader and has the experience and product range to cope with your individual situations. Ensure that even though you may only wish to choose a good cleaner at the moment you will be able to expand the scope of your programme and product range at a later stage. 3. What are the threats in an industrial environment? • Chemical elements • Physical elements • Climate • The Sun • Softening of the skin • Cleaning methods 4. How do we prevent damage and dermatitis? A perfect system for skin care would have three aspects to it. This means that it would contain an element of Protection, Cleaning and also Aftercare. • Protection Protection products are often referred to as barrier products and are a cream applied to the skin before work is commenced. They are used in order to protect the skin against particular hazards. 230 Select PPE Protecting People Everyday
