Abstract
Tracking the number of and preventing occupational burn injuries is a priority in Oregon because the number of work-related burn injuries in the state has remained relatively constant since 2000. In addition, these injuries result in thousands of dollars in health care costs and lost days at work and in some cases can result in death. Occupational burn injuries are preventable with appropriate education, worker training, personal protective equipment (PPE), engineering and administrative controls, and safe work practices. This issue of "Putting Data to Work" provides partners with a scope of the problem summary, epidemiological data in Oregon, information about burn injuries, case summaries, and strategies and resources to prevent work-related burn injuries.
