Implementing Skin Care Best Practice
Skin health experts agree that three elements are required to reduce the risk to skin health in the workplace.
Adopt a Skin Care Programme
The availability of pre-work and after-work protection creams along with skin cleansers
Follow a Universal Skin Care Standard
A simple guideline for any workplace that defines when workers should apply pre-work and after-work protection creams
Create a Change in Skin Care Behaviour
Application of simple education and learning tools, combined with monitoring and feedback mechanisms to make skin health a priority at work
The 3-Moments of Skin Care - A Universal Standard for Skin Care Behaviour
A simple, easy to apply guideline developed by an international panel of leading skin health experts that defines the three moments that workers should apply pre-work and after-work skin protection creams:
Moment 1: BEFORE WORK
Application of skin protection cream to help protect the skin from exposure.
Moment 2: DURING WORK
Following contamination, or at the end of each work period, hands should be washed with an appropriate hand cleanser and then followed with the application of protection or restore cream.
Moment 3: AFTER WORK
Application of restore cream to help recover skin strength and health.
