Burns are generally discussed in terms of their severity—first degree, second degree, and third degree. In this course, you’ll learn how to prevent burns from occurring at work, how to recognize the degree of a burn, how to provide first aid for different degrees of burns, and how to provide first aid for special types of burns, including electrical burns, burns from chemical spills, and thermal (heat) burns.

One way burns are categorized is by their severity. First degree burns are the least severe; second degree burns are more severe; and third degree burns are the most severe
The first aid you’ll provide a burn victim will depend, in part, on the type of burn it is. Burns can include thermal (or heat) burns, chemical burns, electrical burns, as well as other types of burns
