Burn incidents don’t happen often, so there isn’t much to worry about, right? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 16,000 industrial injuries due to thermal burns were reported for the year 2013. From 2000 to 2013, nearly 2,300 workers died as a result of injuries sustained in an industrial fire or explosion.
The people injured or lost in these types of accidents are parents, spouses and friends. We need to do everything in our power to prevent burn injuries from occurring.
