Skin Assessment & What It Can Do For Employees
This section provides a summary of employers’ and employees’ key responsibilities for ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of their employees. Further details can be obtained from publications listed in the reference section.
Employees’ health, safety, and welfare at work are protected by law. This means that employers have a duty under the law to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable:
- the health, safety, and welfare at work of their employees; and
- employees are consulted and informed about health and safety issues, ie issues are discussed with the employees or their safety representative if there is one.
Employees have a duty to co-operate with their employer by using the safe systems of work correctly.
As part of the health surveillance services we offer across the UK, we can provide skin assessment in the workplace as part of an overall occupational dermatitis health surveillance program.
All industries can be affected, the commonest being:
- Hair and beauty
- Catering/food industry
- Chemical work
- Rubber manufacturer
- Offshore work
Are you in contact with any of the above materials daily at work? A skin assessment may be what you need!

Do you suffer from irritated skin? You may need a face to face referral with an Occupational Health Physician!
This involves a chat with our OHP regarding your skincare and any other relevant medical information. Once your appointment is complete you will receive a full medical report including any recommendations and advice that you may need to keep you safe in the workplace and to prevent any further skin conditions that may occur without the correct advice.
