Description / Abstract:

Introduction

This pamphlet presents, in general terms, the causes and particularly the prevention of skin disorders (dermatoses) which may result from exposure to cutting fluids, namely petroleum cutting oils, emulsions and synthetic coolants.

The history of the dermatoses associated with cutting oils, and emulsions antedates the development of modem specialized cutting oils, emulsions and lubricants by many years. The earliest reference to oil dermatoses mentions, chiefly, skin lesions of spinners and machinists exposed to sperm and shale lubricating oils. The first published report of oil acne appeared in 1861. Since then, and closely identified with the rapid technological advances of modern industry, considerable literature on the subject has been accumulated.

The first and most important step in planning a program for combating dermatoses is to acquire knowledge about the factors affecting their occurrence. A program of this nature, suitably organized and administered, is capable of achieving considerable success in reducing the incidence of skin disease.
