Over the years, latex allergies have mainly been linked to wearing gloves. However, there are many areas within your workplace where you will come in to contact with latex that may not be so obvious, one of these is the use of tourniquets. “It has been estimated that 43% of NHS staff suffer from some sort of skin irritation.... and within all UK groups exposed to latex, this equates to 1.5million British people”.
