Common Causes Of Workplace Burns
Burn injuries can result from a wide range of accidents, including:
- Electrocution: Exposed wires and unsecured electrical materials can expose a worker to potential electrocution when proper safety precautions are not taken.
- Chemical exposure: Certain types of chemicals are prone to creating burns if they are handled improperly or an accident occurs resulting in toxic spills and fumes that can cause burns to the lungs and skin.
- Fires and explosions: Whether a controlled fire became too large, a piece of equipment started a fire, or an explosion suddenly rocked the workplace, the heat of these incidents can not only directly burn victims, but also cause burns to individuals who were not at the center of the accident.
The Impact Of Burn Injuries
Whether you have suffered a first-degree, second-degree or third-degree burn, any degree of burn can have a serious impact on the rest of your life. Even after the initial burns heal, burn patients often require additional medical care. Secondary injuries can occur, such as infections that cause additional pain and suffering. Many burns also may need future treatment with skin grafts. Plastic surgery may be required to correct any scarring and/or disfigurement that may occur.
