A rash overview of occupational skin diseases.
Toxicologist 2004 Mar; 78(S-1):251
The importance of skin exposures in occupational settings has become more apparent. Skin can serve as both a target organ of occupational exposures as well as a route of absorption. This presentation will review the field activities of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) involving direct effects on the skin and dermal exposure responses. It will review the wide spectrum of occupational skin diseases (OSDs), describe the epidemiology and public health importance of OSDs, emphasize the causes of contact dermatitis, and review results from NIOSH surveillance and health hazard evaluation investigations.
