Impact of burns seminar Burns seminar

A burn is a type of injury to skin, or other tissues, caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, friction or radiation.
Most burns are due to heat from hot liquids, solids, and fire. Burns are some of the most severe injuries in existence and have a high likelihood of causing permanent damage.
The depth of the burn depends on the temperature, the exposure time of the heat on the skin and the cause of combustion (e.g. hot liquid fire). A temperature of above 40 degrees Celcius is enough to damage the skin.

On the 27th of may, ROOTS in cooperation with the Dutch Burns Foundation and the specialised Burnwound Centre of the Maasstad hospital will organise a seminar about burns.
During this seminar we will go deeper into the effects of the medical effects burns have onto the body and the effect that flame retardent workwear has in an industrial environment.
There will be speakers from both the Burnwound Centre of the Maasstad hospital and the Dutch Burns Foundation during the seminar.
