Burns, scars, lacerations
Some jobs put you more at risk of a burn, scar or laceration but it’s your employer’s responsibility to minimise these workplace dangers.
Burns and lacerations are common injuries if you work in an environment where chemicals, extreme heat, electrical equipment or machinery is used. But some burn or laceration injuries can result in lifelong scarring, causing significant psychological harm and distress.
In many cases, these injuries could have been avoided by simply being more careful or putting in place certain precautionary measures.
Some common causes of burn injuries include:
- Handling hot surfaces, liquids or corrosive chemicals without appropriate personal protective equipment
- Exposed electrical wires or improperly insulated electrical equipment
- Road accidents
