Burns are a specific type of injury and, as such, they require specific understanding and treatments. Any first aid trained staff should be given specific information about burns, especially if the type of work you do or the equipment you have means there's a higher risk of people burning themselves, such as in kitchens. This poster provides comprehensive information on first aid treatments for burns, and its simple layout makes it easy for people to reference and find what they need to know.
The tough, hard-wearing laminated poster can be displayed in areas where burns are a significant risk, or in staff rooms and canteens so that it will be seen frequently. It's robust surface makes it longer lasting than a plain paper or card sign, even if people regularly brush past it. Simply fix it in place using our self-adhesive tabs or mount it in a frame and it will be easy for people to find in an emergency.
The information on the poster is divided into eight different sections to cover all the important factors regarding burn treatments. Starting with an introduction, the remaining sections are the classification of burns, treatment of burns, chemical burns, dressing a burn, clothing on fire, complicated burns and burn severity. Each section has simple text to aid understanding and is accompanied by a graphic to illustrate the information and provide extra guidance. Combined, these sections cover all important areas in the understanding of burns, and the poster makes a great companion to our general first aid in the workplace poster.
With its colourful design and red and yellow border, the poster is eye-catching and attractive, making it more likely to get people's attention if they're looking for burns information. Its laminated surface makes it easy to keep clean, just by giving it a wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust and debris and keep it readable and in good condition.
Because burns require different treatments to other injuries, make sure you keep a burns first aid kit with other medical supplies so first aiders have the tools they need to help people effectively.
