Surveillance of Work-Related Burns in Michigan
Work-related burns are a preventable cause of work-related injury and are among the leading causes of workplace disability. In Michigan, surveillance for work-related burns began in 2009. Records from Michigan’s hospitals/emergency departments, Workers' Compensation Agency, the state’s sole Poison Control Center (PCC) and death certificates are used to identify work-related burns. The Michigan work-related burn surveillance system allows the State to identify causes of work-related burns, target interventions to reduce future burns and evaluate the effectiveness of these interventions.
