PARENT INFORMATION

Did you now 26% of Children under-4 suffer a burn-related injury?

In a recent survey, it has been revealed that 26% of young children aged 0-4 years incurred burn, scald or fire related injuries and 83% of these injuries occurred before their third birthday.
The highest cause of accident was from contact with hot drinks, foods, fats and cooking oils.

Winter presents so many hazards around the home from hot cooktops, fireplaces, bar and oil heaters and electric blankets to scalding hot bathtub taps and spouts.

To help keep children safe from burns and scalds this winter, First Aid For You (www.firstaidforyou.com.au) offers these tips:

  • Place a cold, damp face washer or dishcloth over hot taps and spouts immediately after use.
  • Keep hot drinks away from the edge of kitchen counter or tables - it only takes a slight nudge for a scalding tea or coffee to fall
  • Keep handles of pots and pans away from edge of cooktop - face them away from curious little hands
  • Educate children about the difference between hot and cold with picture books or DVDs
  • If your child does suffer a burn - don't use ice - use cool, slow running water on burns for 20 minutes (under the shower is a good place to start)

Information provided by www.firstaidforyou.com.au

Should an accident occur in your home seek professional medical advice immediately.
