You can prevent burns by allowing alcohol-based sanitizers to dry/evaporate before resuming work activity.

Hand sanitizers contain high concentrations of alcohol and alcohol vapors can flame or flash if exposed to an ignition source, switches, or any surface containing static electricity.

UC Davis Fire Prevention Services is available to assist with ensuring hand-sanitizer dispensers are installed in a code-compliant manner in rooms and corridors.
