Contact dermatitis is usually caused by direct body contact with a biological substance or chemical compounds that are hazardous.

It involves eliminating the toxic substances and replacing them with substances that are non-toxic. Another way to prevent OCD is by wearing protective clothing when an employee’s work involves being in contact with compounds that are harmful. Such protective wear includes laboratory coats, boots, gloves, dust masks and boiler suits.
