Mrs P from the city of Manchester was 47 when she encountered her accident at work in the middle of March. Her accident was caused by a leaking container which was leaking through no fault of hers. If a burn is sustained within the work place it is a result of an accident or poor safety practice.
If chemicals are not stored and transported properly they can cause fires explosions or personal injury. It is the employers? responsibility to make sure chemicals are stored correctly and safely.
Burns can be extremely painful and can take a long period of rehabilitation. The longer the chemical stays on the skin the deeper the burn may be. This deeper the burn is the more likely the wound is to get infected which can prolong recovery time. Burns require immediate attentive professional medical assistance. In the worst cases burns to the skin can require surgical procedures to heal correctly: operations may be needed to craft new skin over the burnt area of the body if the skin is not able to heal after a first or second degree burn.
Workplace burns account for 20%-25% of all serious burns which need hospital attention and they account for about 5% of all workplace deaths. Many people who have suffered these burns are left with scars as a result of the burns or as a result of the surgical procedures required following the accident at work.
