Don’t let burns ruin your barbecue

Summer is here and with it comes sunny al fresco barbecues! Granted, the unreliable British weather might mean we have to keep our fingers crossed for the ‘sunny’ element but that will not dampen out spirits. However, burning yourself at a barbecue will.

If you’re planning on having a barbecue this summer, it’s imperative that you have the skills to be able to deal with burns. Last time figures were collected*, they found that an estimated 1,800 people a year visit A&E having had an accident involving a barbecue. The vast majority of barbecue accidents happen in a home setting, with a minority occurring in a public place.

Would you know how to treat burns?

  1. Cool the burn under cold running water for at least ten minutes.
  2. Loosely cover the burn with cling film or a clean plastic bag.
  3. If necessary, call 999 or get someone else to do it.
