Abstract

Farming is the industry with the highest risk of occupational skin disease. In Poland, every fourth farmer suffers from work-related skin problems. In the USA, the incidence of occupational skin diseases amounts to 38.3 cases per 10,000 insured per year. This is far more than in other industry branches (mean 9.8/10,000/year) and 30 times more that occupational respiratory diseases. In Finland farmers amount to 22% of all occupational skin diseases despite the fact they are only 7% of workforce.
