Abstract
A total of 104 restaurant and food service workers were hospitalized in Oklahoma burn centers for work-related burn injuries from 1988 to 2006. Eighteen (17%) of these workers were under 20 years of age. One-third of the burns involved more than 10% total body surface area. Burns and scalds may occur while teens are working as fry cooks, preparing or serving hot foods or drinks, cleaning dishes, and even delivering.
