Zusammenfassung: 
Prevention of chronic barber's eczema has gained considerable importance in the recent years. The prevalence of this occupational dermatosis is steadily increasing, causing not only detrimental sequelae for the employees affected, but also accounting for a dramatical rise of costs in the social insurance system. Pathophysiologically the most important factor ist the recently defined `'atopic skin diathesis''. For this reason successful preventative concepts have to detect these susceptible individuals and offer them specific care. We report our primary prevention modell, which links preemployment screening with effective measure of skin protection, and farthermore combines individual and group counseling in a competensive program involving the cooperative efforts of industrial accident insurances, safety personal, health insurances, school authorities and physicians in the field of dermatology and occupational medicine.
