Survey reveals limited awareness of recreation-related burn risks, treatment
from Safety+Health Magazine
Most people underestimate the risk of burn injuries stemming from popular summertime items such as fire pits, grills and fireworks, while fewer than half understand common burn injury treatments, results of a recent survey indicate. National polling firm Ipsos, on behalf of the Arizona Burn Center at Valleywise Health, conducted an online survey of 1,000 U.S. adults in June, asking about their planned summer activities, the risk of burn injuries related to the activities and their knowledge of burn injury treatments.
