A Burning Issue With Codes


For Professionals Committed to Safety




A small child doesn't have to soak
in overly hot tap water to get scalded.
Tragically, injury can happen literally
in the blink of an eye. Here's how
long it takes for a baby to suffer a severe burn:





150 degree water scalds in just 1/2 second!





140 degree water scalds in just 1 second!




But it takes four minutes for water at 120 degrees to scald.
