Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic,
From your description I feel that he has contact allergy to something which he touches daily during work. I advise him to apply a thick moisturizing cream like white soft paraffin plus liquid paraffin frequently over hands after every hand wash. It is a good idea to wear cotton gloves when he is working.
Hope this helped,
Take care.
