Reducing the rate of occupational dermatitis

Inflammation of the skin from exposure to allergenic or irritating substances — or occupational dermatitis — is considered a WHS risk.

Chemicals and products used across a range of industries (including acids and solvents, petroleum products, synthetic rubber and cement) can all cause a strong reaction on the skin.

Prevention of occupational dermatitis should therefore include the implementation of a proper skincare program that involves components such as the correct use of skin protection (gloves), as well as the proper use of skincare products.

SC Johnson Professional — a global manufacturer of industrial and institutional skincare, cleaning and hygiene products — will be exhibiting at the upcoming Workplace Health and Safety Show, taking place at the Sydney Showground. It will showcase its four-step skincare system designed for construction, manufacturing, mining, energy, infrastructure, transport, food service, education, aged-care & child-care sectors — helping workers maintain a healthy skin condition and protect them from workplace substances.

“SC Johnson Professional is committed to the creation of safe and healthy environments for Australia’s workforce. We’re delighted to have SC Johnson Professional exhibiting at the Workplace Health and Safety Show, where we’ll also unpack the latest health and safety legislation, safety technology and best practices,” said Marie Kinsella, CEO of the International Exhibition & Conference (IEC) Group organisers of the WHS Show.

The Workplace Health & Safety Show will take place on Wednesday, 20 and Thursday, 21 September 2023, Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.
