Abstract
From 1988-2006, 1,292 persons were hospitalized in a burn center and 146 died a result of a work-related burn injury. One hundred twelve (9%) of these injuries (including 2 deaths) were the result of a chemical burn. Chemical burns can be severe and result in a high number of lost workdays. Although more than two-thirds of the chemical burns involved less than 10% of the body surface area, one person was hospitalized 61 days with burns to 50% of their body.
