Workers from almost every industrial sector and trade routinely experience dermal exposures to chemicals via contact with contaminated surfaces, deposition of aerosols and vapors, and immersion in or splashes from liquids. Such exposures may result in adverse health consequences ranging from direct effects to the skin (e.g., irritant contact dermatitis and corrosion) to systemic effects (e.g., cancers and neurological effects) and to sensitization (e.g., allergic contact dermatitis). Occupational skin diseases have previously been identified as one of the leading causes of occupational illness within the United States workforce with many of the reported skin disorders being associated with chemical exposures.
