The IT’S IN YOUR HANDS© campaign was launched by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF), Safety Groups UK (SG UK), the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS), the Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) and the TUC in 2006.
The initiative aimed to promote improved skin care in industrial and commercial organisations. The objective of the campaign was to significantly reduce the incidence of work-related dermatitis. The campaign was successful and HSE statistics show that the incidence of work-related dermatitis is reducing.
A brochure was the main vehicle for the initiative and has been widely used throughout the UK.
