Hot water from your bathroom tap at 60°C takes just 1 second to seriously burn a young child.
Over 5,500 Australian children are hospitalised due to sustaining a severe burn injury through hot water scalding each year, all of which could have been prevented.
Bosch and the Julian Burton Burns Trust have partnered to help South Australian families prevent hot water scalding in their homes and offer the following safety tips:
Never leave your child unattended in the bath or shower
Never carry hot water across a room where children may be playing
Teach your child what ‘hot’ means
