Dermal exposure is a complex process of contact between a relevant substance and the skin over a period of time. Diseases resulting from dermal exposure (and consequently absorption) may have a significant impact on human health. The best approach to manage the risks associated with dermal exposure is to identify relevant hazards (chemicals and products), sources and pathways of exposure, quantitatively assess the exposure (by either measuring or modelling it) for further risk assessment and eventually eliminate or at least reduce and control the exposure.
