Protecting yourself from skin disease
If you are working with hazardous substances at work, your employer should already be aware of the harm any substances you are working with can cause you. As the first priority, your employer should evaluate whether an alternative substance could be used instead which is safer.
If this is not a possibility, your employer should then arrange for you to have the minimal amount of contact with the substance by using splash guards or extractors for example.
As a final resort, your employer should provide you with protective clothing to wear such as gloves or overalls which prevent the substance from coming into contact with your skin. Providing this protective clothing is made available to you, it is your responsibility as an employee to wear the clothing at all times and protect yourself.
