Risk Focus: 火傷

火傷はどこで発生しても悪い知らせですが、医療施設から離れた海上で発生した場合、重大な死亡事故に繋がる恐れもあります。 今回のリスクフォーカスでは、UKクラブが取扱った数多くの事例をもとに、船員に火傷をもたらす危険性や、発生の防止、その正しい治療法等をまとめています。

Burns can be some of the most painful and dangerous of personal injuries that may be inflicted both at work and in domestic situations. The potential sources and causes of burn injuries can be varied and may range from a painful but minor inconvenience to life changing injury and death.

This Risk Focus, supported by numerous cases handled by the Club, highlights the danger burn injuries pose to crew members and the importance of preventing these from occuring, or in the worst cases, seeking the right treatment.

For more information on any of the issues covered in this Risk Focus, Members can get in touch with the Club's Loss Prevention department, or with their usual Club contact.
