Alcohol-based hand sanitisers used in the fight against Covid-19 are flammable. The warning comes after an employee suffered second-degree burns to their hands after coming in contact with a static spark. CE Safety said: “Any person who carries out hot works – such as welding, soldering, grinding, cutting, burning or any other process that produces sparks – should, as a rule, use a hand-sanitising solution that is completely free of alcohol. Logic does suggest that common hot-work PPE, such as welding gloves and masks, would negate the need for non-alcoholic hand sanitiser, but it cannot be assumed that skin will be covered at all times.” To minimise risk, washing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds is recommended.
