There are many occasions when fire could be a potential hazard not only in the workplace but also at home and pursuing leisure activities. Barbecues have never been so popular at home or at local events. Eating outside with friends and family has become a great social activity. We can all take as much care as possible but there are times when accidents do happen and at barbecues this could include minor and more serious burns.
The effect of serious burns or scalds may be reduced if the right emergency first aid is given immediately. Both burns and scalds cause damage and pain by overheating the surface of the body. The affected area needs to be cooled as quickly as possible. This can be done by using cold running water but better still is to be prepared for any potential accidents causing burns or scalds by having a First Aid Kit with contents that help reduce the skin temperature.
BURNSHIELD is a simple to use gel impregnated burn treatment designed to lower skin temperature and alleviate pain prior to hospital treatment.
In the event of serious burns call the Emergency Services IMMEDIATELY.
