Burns as electrical personnel injuries in Dr. Stanisław Sakiel, M.D., medical and scientific activity

Bogumił Dudek, Stefan Gierlotka

Narrow domain for electricians are medical efforts in favor of still numerous (though their scale decreases over the years) cases of shocks and burns caused by electric current. Nearly four decades ago the former Department of Work Safety in the Institute for Energy has undertaken a research connected with electrocution accidents, establishing cooperation with Dr. Stanisław Sakiel, M.D., and his team. The effect of these works are the still in use today principles for provision of first aid. The then progress in treatment and development of personal protection equipment dedicated to electricians exposed to the risk of electrocution was a pioneer period. The established – after many years of practice – Centrum Leczenia Oparzeń (Burn Treatment Center) in Siemianowice Śląskie is named after Dr. Stanisław Sakiel (1926-2013).
