June is Burns Awareness Month!

Kidsafe WA is partnering with ANZBA for National Burns Awareness Month this June! National Burns Awareness Month is an initiative of Kidsafe Australia, Australia’s leading community organisation dedicated to child injury prevention, and is held in June each year as there is a significantly increased risk of burns during the winter.

The month will launch with a social media campaign, raising awareness of burns and scald injuries, burns and scald prevention and correct burns first aid in both children and adults.

Common burn mechanisms affecting children include scalds from hot tea, coffee and food (liquid or solid), flame burns related to campfires/bonfires and scalds from fat or oil more common in adults.

Kidsafe Australia will be sharing burn prevention and safety messaging through their Facebook page and encourage you to raise awareness of burns prevention through your own platforms.
