The Medicines Safety Assurance Tool (MSAT) is provided as a PDF document for reference. To request the spreadsheet solution of this safety tool, or for more information about this tool, to make a comment, or share a safety issue please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The MSAT was developed to improve the management of medicines related risk to patients. It is intended to provide commissioners with a systematic way of identifying and analysing emerging medicines safety issues and engage with providers to reduce medicines related harm.
Although emollients are not flammable in themselves or when on the skin, when dried on to fabric they act as an accelerant, increasing the speed of ignition and intensity of the fire. This accelerant effect significantly reduces the time available to act to put out a clothing or bedding fire before serious and fatal burns are sustained.
