Hot Water Burns Like Fire Campaign
The Hot Water Burns Like Fire campaign was launched on the 14th September by Wakefield MP Mary Creagh with the aim of persuading the Government to introduce legislation to restrict the outlet temperatures for baths to 48°C in England and Wales, regulations which already apply in Scotland.
Every year in the UK around 20 people die and 570 suffer serious scald injuries due to hot bath water, with the under fives and the elderly are most at risk.
