Burn Statistics Louisiana

Each year, about 450,000 Americans need medical treatment for burn injuries, according to the American Burn Association. In the United States, the leading cause of home casualties is due to fires, with home burn injuries accounting for about 85 percent. Almost all injuries and deaths are preventable. Often, factors such as being under the influence of alcohol, or a lack of smoke detectors are what lead to deaths and burn injuries.

Prevention of Home Burn Injury

There are various causes for fires that lead to burns; however, at the root of most of these events is negligence. Essential to safety is being aware of potentially flammable objects and materials as well as taking precautions to prevent ignition. Safety measures should be put in place to help prevent burns and fires.

Consider the following to prevent burn injuries and fires from happening at home:

  • Never leave incense or candles unattended
  • Never leave cooking food unattended
  • Using properly maintained oven mitts while cooking
  • Never smoke in bed and avoid smoking in the house
  • Keeping curtains and other flammable substances away from heat sources
  • Keep electrical outlets and equipment properly maintained
  • Give space heaters as well as other stand-alone heat sources much space
  • Prevent scalding by setting water heater between 120-130 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Unplug electrical appliances when not in use

Maintain smoke detectors or other fire prevention measures. It is recommended to change the batteries in a smoke detector every six months at a minimum. 


Prevention of Burn Injury in Children

Children are involved in many burn deaths and injuries. Parents, as well as caregivers, must be particularly attentive to ensure children stay away from circumstances in which a child may cause fires or burns. Teaching children what causes fires or burns can be tremendously helpful in the prevention of burn injuries. Learning and practicing a safety plan in the event of a fire can help save a child’s life.

Consider the following to prevent children from causing burn injuries or fires:

  • Keep electrical appliances away from children
  • Keep lighters, matches, and candles away from children
  • Keep hazardous chemicals out of the reach of children
  • Opt for stoves and appliances with burn prevention features
  • Turn pot handles in on the stove and keep hot liquids away from a child’s reach


Prevention of Burn Injury at Job Sites

The workplace is a location where many fires and burn injuries can occur. Safety measures should be in place at every workplace where an employee might be at risk of burn injuries or fire. To ensure employers obey these safety measures, codes, and regulations are in place. However, it is up to employees and managers to make sure safety measures are followed through on a daily basis. Also, all employees should understand the risks and prevention procedures. Fire control systems should be properly maintained, and first aid should be made available for any minor burns.
