Types of burn
Injuries resulting in a burn can be caused in almost any environment, whether it’s at your workplace, at a restaurant, on holiday or while driving. A burn is usually caused by exposure to fire or an incredibly hot object or liquid, but can also be caused by electricity, radiation, friction or a chemical.
They are usually split up into three categories, depending on the severity of your burn, including:
- First degree - redness to the skin, minor pain, no blistering or scarring
