FREE Webinar: Surgical Hands: A Chemical Battlefield in the OR

Occupational contact dermatitis (OCD), an inflammatory skin condition that occurs due to workplace exposure, can have long-term consequences, causing some healthcare workers to miss work and even change jobs. Nurses working in surgical wards and intensive care units are at the highest risk among healthcare workers. 

Surgical gloves are a common culprit of both irritant and allergic contact dermatitis in the healthcare setting. Glove-associated irritants include wet work, friction, air occlusion, excessive sweating, and poor hand hygiene. In addition, wearers may incur allergic contact dermatitis to chemical additives, especially accelerators that are added to speed up the manufacturing process, in both latex and synthetic gloves. 

This free webinar will help you understand treatment and prevention measures relative to OCD, including switching to gloves that have been manufactured without chemicals accelerators known to cause contact dermatitis.
