Minor Burns

Minor burns can be caused by direct heat or by hot liquids or steam (scalds).

They are an all too common occurrence in the home and many are caused by doing everyday tasks and chores such as cooking and ironing.

The following prevention tips can help you avoid burns accidents in the home:

  • Use a comb to protect from heated hair appliances
  • After ironing put the iron on a secure surface to cool down
  • Use long oven gloves when taking things out of the oven
  • Turn pan handles away from the front of the cooker
  • Keep hot drinks away from small children


Minor Burns

A burn is classified as minor when it is smaller than a postage stamp and the skin remains unbroken. They can be very painful, the affected area is typically red in colour and hot to touch.

Major Burns

A major burn injury is when skin is damaged by a large amount of heat or prolonged amount of heat - ranging from red-black in colour, the skin may also be cracked or blistered and weeping.
