Particularly concerned are the professions in the forestry and agriculture hair loss from seborrheic dermatitis, horticulture and the construction industry, but also pilots. As occupational disease number 5103 the squamous cell carcinoma as well as its precursors - the actinic keratoses - are recognized if they have assumed a certain extent and thus have become multiple.

Basal cell carcinomas and melanomas, on the other hand, are not recognized as occupational diseases, since there is still no evidence that these are caused by work-related UV radiation. The DGUV (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung) also conducts research into the health effects of artificial radiation sources, such as welding.

Only in the last third are painters, painters and painters who come into contact with dilutions and varnishes for a large part of their working hours. In order to determine the respective hazard potentials, the allergen contact overview of 121doc is available to those affected, which relates the individual irritants to different occupational groups:
