    Common causes of burn injuries at work


    Burn injuries can cause severe scarring, which could be permanent. Even minor burns can cause redness, soreness and irritation, and you’ll probably need medical treatment and some time off work. If you’ve been burnt at work, it’s important to ask yourself who is to blame. It might be that your injuries were caused by an employer’s negligence, or perhaps one of your colleagues is at fault.

    If this is the case, you could make a 100% no win, no fee claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. With a little attention to employee health and safety, most of the common causes of burn injuries at work can be avoided or managed, reducing your risk of being involved in a workplace accident.

    Being burnt at work – how could it happen?

    It’s not just chefs and those working in kitchens who are at risk of burns at work. Here are a few examples of the most common causes of burn injuries at work:

    • Somebody spilling hot food or drink on you, either whilst working in a kitchen or even a colleague in the office
    • Injured by faulty kitchen equipment, such as an exploding kettle or blender
    • Burning yourself on kitchen equipment which should have been turned off, such as a gas hob or oven
    • Electrical burns from faulty electrical equipment
    • Industrial accidents – for example industrial ovens could cause burns

    There have been cases of factory workers being seriously injured or even killed in industrial oven accidents, but you may be lucky enough to have escaped with more minor injuries. Even minor burns could still take time to heal, and you may need to take a few days, weeks or months off work until you’re well enough to return. If this makes life difficult for your family financially, making a personal injury claim means you can claim compensation for your loss of earnings, as well as your pain and suffering.
