Burned on the Job Louisiana

As stated by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA burns on the job account for more than 5,000 workers hospitalized each year, 200 of those injuries are fatal. Burn injuries are one of the more serious injuries that take place in the work environment.

Common Burn Injuries Taken Place at Work

Chemical Burns

When soft tissue comes in contact with a synthetic, corrosive material, a chemical burn occurs. In addition to skin, the soft tissue includes ears, eyes, and internal organs. Alkylating agents, thinning agents, acids, solvents, bases, and oxidizers are the main types of corrosive compounds.

Electrical Burns

Coming in contact with either a direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC) causes an electrical burn. Falling into the electrified water, touching a functioning electrical wire or socket, or being struck by lightning results in electrical burns.

Thermal Burns

Contact with boiling liquid, flame, or steam causes a thermal burn. Touching a hot object such as tools, motors, engines, and pipes may also result in a thermal burn. Thermal radiation burns (sunburn) is caused by prolonged exposure to the sun.

Depending on the severity and type of burn, extensive skin damage, internal injuries, and complications may occur from being burned on the job. Rehabilitation, ongoing medical treatment, and mental health counseling are some of the long-term effects that may be necessary from a burn injury. Employees with a serious burn may miss work for an extended period of time or possibly be partially or totally disabled.
