Did you know that up to 30% of the population is especially sensitive to fragrances? Scents can be an asthma trigger resulting in headaches, nausea and other symptoms. People have different tolerance levels to scented products, but typically children and women and those with asthma, allergies or environmental sensitivities are generally at more risk.
So what can we do? Avoid wearing scented personal care products such as perfume, cologne, aftershave, scented lotions, creams, hairspray, mousse or gel, scented deodorant or antiperspirant. Also, use fragrance-free skin care products including cleansers and creams in your home and workplace.
A scent-free policy is one example of a workplace-wide initiative meant to minimize allergic reactions. As employers do have a duty to accommodate, it is crucial they recognize concerns amongst their staff and have a process in place to overcome any issues.
