Hold the Mustard (Infographic)

OSHA has received some 28 complaints from 19 different cities from McDonald’s workers who allege they have suffered severe burns on the job. They claim that hot oil combined with a pressure to move fast (too fast, they claim) create an environment ripe for burns. Add to this the fact that oil gets spilled on the floor  and you can see where burn injuries might be high.

One-third (33%) of all burn victims say that their manager suggested wholly inappropriate treatments for burns, including condiments such as mustard, mayonnaise, butter, or ketchup, instead of burn cream.” – Hart Research Associates
