Occupational Dermatitis & Employee Wellbeing
In the automotive trade many of the causes of occupational skin disorders are readily found within every garage and workshop. Amongst these are oil, fuel, grease, abrasives, solvents, cleaning chemicals and refinishing paints, all of which are handled daily and have the potential to attack the skin leading to dermatitis.
Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, employers have a number of duties and responsibilities for health and safety in the workplace. Specifically, employers must provide suitable washing facilities for all employees and manage the control of hazardous materials providing necessary protective measures where required.

The Solution – The Swarfega Skin Care System
A 3 step Swarfega skin care system helps to maintain the skin in good condition and retain its protective function. The system also meets health and safety requirements.
STEP 1: Protect
Swarfega Protect helps protect the skin against contact with potentially harmful contaminants and makes skin easier to clean.
STEP 2: Cleanse
Washing your hands regularly with any of the range of Swarfega hand cleansers prevents the build-up of soiling and reduces contact time with contaminants.
STEP 3: Restore
Regular use of Swarfega Restore at the end of each work period helps replenish the skin’s natural oils and prevent skin dryness. It also helps to reduce the risk of irritant dermatitis.
Improved cost-in-use – The Swarfega Skin Care System
The range of Swarfega ‘Cleanse’ products consists of cartridges and dispensers, pump packs and bulk products. Additional to the hand hygiene and skin care benefits, the Swarfega range of ‘Cleanse’ products provide cost benefits too.
From previous trial data, we estimate that the average use of bulk product in a hand wash is 40ml compared to a shot size of 4.5ml for a Swarfega cartridge, ideal for one hand wash.
Due to their measured shot sizes, Swarfega sealed cartridge systems can provide substantial savings of up to 86% saving compared to bulk products.
