Skin irritations and allergies are regularly reported in the Arve Valley. At the request of a group of industrial companies, the CETIM-CTDEC and SNDEC initiated a project covering the subject.
A survey designed by several partners was launched all across the Haute-Savoie and Savoie regions to understand these occurrences of dermatitis and the situations conductive to their development.
To provide direction in how to overcome this problem, three work groups were created to leverage the following issues:
- “Study of the causes of dermatitis”, with the occupational medicine department, CARSAT, UIMM and the Pôle Mont Blanc Industries,
- “Best practices” with the participation of 7 industrial players,
- “Meetings with suppliers”.
This workshop will present a summary of the work performed by the groups.
