What is it, exactly?
Dermatitis, in short, covers a wide range of skin conditions including eczema. One can aggravate it through contact with certain materials such as latex, or affected by dust or animal hair. Some compensation claims for occupational dermatitis are for people whose condition worsens in their working environment. Meanwhile, other personal injury claims are for those who have didn’t suffer before.
There are two main types of dermatitis: irritant and contact. Examples of dermatitis claims can include:
- Coming into contact with chemicals or irritating enzymes without having access to appropriate protective equipment.
- Having to use products which cause dermatitides, such as antibacterial hand wash in a hospital or kitchen.
- Exposure to irritating chemicals on a regular basis, including hair dye and other chemicals.
Not every case of work-related dermatitis is grounds for compensation, though. For instance, you must judge that an employer is negligent in their responsibility for a claim to be successful. This may be if you are unaware of the dangers of chemicals or materials you are working with. Also, if they don’t provide you with the appropriate protective gear, or if the storage or dispensation of material is unsafe.
A high number of occupational dermatitis claims come from those working in the motor industry who have not been provided with suitable gloves when working with corrosive liquids like coolant and rust inhibitor.
An example of a successful claim features an automotive mechanic who develops dermatitis on his hands. This as a result of repeatedly getting rust inhibitor on them from radiator hoses. Subsequently, he moves to a role which involves no exposure to any liquids. As a result, his skin clears up. However it was still sensitive and prone to flare-ups under certain conditions.
