We have had just a few and try to treat with OTC first aid (benadryl cream, barrier cream, changing mask brands) so that we will not have claims or recordability.
If someone does progress beyond first aid, we would file as WC.

Good morning everyone:
   Was wondering if you had to deal with mask-related skin reactions and rashes in the context of having employees wear masks all day!!!
   If you did, are you calling those work-related and offer WC evaluations and treatment!!

Thanks ,
