Skin Care Concept
An effective skin care concept includes information on how to take concrete protective measures at the respective workplace. Therefore, the hand care plan is an important tool.
With the help of a hand care plan, the employee can easily see which products have to be used in the respective working area. If possible, the creation of the hand care plan and the product choice should be carried out under safety-technical and occupational medical advice.
A complete hand care plan contains the following information:
- Skin protection product before and during work
- Skin cleansers in accordance to dirt level
- Skin care products after work according to skin condition
- Disinfectants (if required)
For the information of the respective employees, the hand care plan is displayed clearly visible at the workplace, usually next to the washing place where the products mentioned therein are available. In addition, it serves as a basis for regular employee training.
The advantages of hand hygiene and skin health maintenance according to the plan: the chance rises for employees to do everything right in terms of hand hygiene and skin care. This may also increase the chance for the skin on the hands and on the forearms to remain healthy despite skin exposure at work.
