There are numerous ways in which employees are injured by burns at work. Employers have a duty of care over employees to ensure the equipment is safe and that a risk assessment has been carried out to highlight any dangers which may arise. Employers also have to supply the correct safety equipment, to include safety clothing, to ensure the safety of all workers.
One of the biggest causes for being burnt in a work accident is from electrics. Electrical burns, or electrocution, can cause severe, life threatening injuries. Being electrocuted will often damage the bodies nervous system, the heart, internal organs, the eyes and the burns which are visible externally. A work accident claim for an electric shock may be made by an employee if they were injured due to someone else’s negligence.
Chemical burns from a work accident are often suffered when working with chemicals such as acids, alkalis and caustics. These chemicals present severe dangers if used incorrectly or without the correct personal protective equipment. Claims for chemical burns from a work accident are common.
Thermal burns caused at work may be due to boiling water, steam from machines or outlets, hot oil or grease, hot items, flames and explosions. Many employees are injured by thermal burns every year.
Severe injuries may be caused by any type of burn and should be treated as soon as possible following the accident.
Any accident at work with burn injuries suffered should be reported to management and logged in the works accident book. In many cases a full investigation will then be carried out to ensure the cause has been discovered and eliminated. The cause of being burnt should be fully recorded with any witness details included. It is of vital importance that the accident book has the facts correct as these details may be used by a burn injury claim solicitor later should a burn injury work accident compensation claim be made.
There are different types of burn injuries often resulting in burn injury work accident compensation claims:
First degree burns may result in a claim for burn injuries, but is on the smaller scale of compensation levels. The burn injury in these cases is superficial as they are on the surface of the skin and the recovery time is fast with minimal scarring if any.
A second degree burn is the next level and affects the epidermis and the dermis (the next layer below the epidermis) and is often suffered in a workplace burn injury.
A third degree burn is the worst kind of burn, as it is full thickness, which will usually leave the skin charred and black. A successful work injury claim for compensation is likely to have a large sum of money paid to the injured person due to the severity of the injury which causes scarring.

We are often asked can an employee be sacked for making a burn injury work accident compensation claim. Legally, the employer cannot terminate the employment of an employee just because they are making a personal injury claim against them. Employers should have insurance to cover employees who are burnt at work in an accident which was not their own fault.
