- Facial burns
- Burns to your body
- Blindness (from UV light during a flashover)
- Internal burns to your throat or lungs
- Ongoing muscular pain
- Nerve problems
- Co-ordination and balance problems
- Heart problems
Many of these injuries have the potential to affect you psychologically as well as physically, so if you have suffered and believe your accident could have been avoided, pick up the phone and call us.

Your employer has a responsibility to ensure your safety at work – this includes following health and safety regulations, carrying out risk assessments and ensuring that you are trained and competent to carry out your duties.
