Deb Group, the world’s leading away-from-home skin care company, released an e-book today titled, “Does my Workplace Need Gloves, Hand Cream or Both?” which discusses strategies for reducing the risk of occupational skin disorders (OSDs).

“Approximately half of industrial workers wear gloves on a regular basis and face ongoing challenges related to skin health, which can affect overall productivity and efficiency,” said Isabelle Faivre, Vice President of Marketing, Deb North America. “Organizations can save thousands of dollars, improve productivity and eliminate OSDs by investing in a complete skin care program that includes pre-work creams.”

The e-book addresses the importance of acknowledging work-related skin problems, a commonly overlooked issue in today’s workforce.  It also discusses steps organizations can take to protect their employees such as knowing when gloves are necessary and when pre-work creams can serve as a supplement. Additionally, the e-book includes information about how managers can get started to mitigate problems and avoid future issues. Included case studies demonstrate how implementing an effective complete skin care program that includes pre-work and after-work skin creams as well as an appropriate hand cleanser can help reduce work-related skin issues.
