Brewery processes create many possibilities for burns. These include thermal, chemical, and electrical hazards. This presentation starts with the physiological processes of burns, as well as the local and systemic injuries they cause, emergency treatment, and long-term effects. We then take a look at both common and lesser known burn hazards. For each type of hazard, we’ll look at preventative and protective strategies. While emphasis is on kettle boil-overs, this presentation describes a total of eight different burn hazards and offers a sample hazard assessment for each.
