New Deb Stoko® range - helping health and safety managers combat occupational skin issues
Wednesday 28th February 2018
The portfolio of Deb Stoko® pre-work creams, hand cleansers and after-work restore creams have been formulated to minimise the risks of skin disease and stress that are common in the workplace.
Health and safety managers perform their duties across numerous scenarios, but the threat of employees contracting a form of occupational skin disease on their premises is universal. Grease, oil, solvents, detergents, soapy water, dust, paper and cardboard -- exposure to these common workplace materials can be damaging to employees' skin if the issue is disregarded.
Whilst costly for an organisation economically, for the employee, the consequences of contracting such skin conditions can be costly on an individual level too -- both in terms of lost income resulting from a prolonged absence from work, as well as the impact on their personal life and general well-being.
Through the use of Deb Stoko® products and by implementing a three-step skin programme in the workplace -- protect, cleanse, restore -- health and safety managers will be able to maintain a happy, healthy workforce, whilst ensuring their facilities are in line with health and safety compliance. The new Deb Stoko® range offers a number of products that are well-suited to many common working environments:
Protect • Stokoderm® range -- a unique collection of specialist creams that protect the skin from harmful contaminants.
Cleanse • Solopol® Classic -- a solvent free, heavy duty hand cleansing paste to minimise the risk of skin irritation. Also available with a light lime fragrance. • Solopol® GrittyFOAM® -- heavy duty hand cleansing foam with scrubbers suspended in the foam to effectively wash away dirt and grime.
Restore • Stokolan® Range
In addition to the most expansive range of occupational skin care products available on the market, Deb provides employers and employees with training and supporting educational materials to help encourage stakeholder buy-in on an issue that is largely overlooked amongst staff and their employers.
"Occupational skin disease is a serious health issue that goes largely unreported in the workplace: an invisible threat that affects both an organisation's efficiency and the health and well-being of its employees," said Paul Jakeway, Marketing Director at Deb UK.
"This is where the new Deb Stoko® range comes in," he continued. "The products and usage programme address the skin care requirements of all end users. They are essential for effective skin health and in reducing the risk of occupational skin disease."
