Are you at risk for head injuries?
Does your job have an increased risk for head injury?
Have you lost consciousness at work after a fall or getting hit on the head?
Did you black out?
Almost every job has some risk, but if you work with heights, heavy machinery, or drive for a living, you face the greatest risks for on the job head injury. Falls, entanglements, and car accidents can all lead to a traumatic brain injury or even death.
Neurologists at Columbia University put the current rate at about 1.7 million new traumatic brain injuries per year. They also note that it costs roughly $56 billion every year to take care of the millions of people who are living with the symptoms of a previous brain injury.
Head injuries should be taken seriously no matter what! If you suffered a head injury on the job and blacked out, you should watch out for these symptoms as they could be an indication of a traumatic brain injury:
- Light sensitivity
- Memory loss
- Trouble with balance
- Blurred vision
If you suffered an injury on the job, you should seek medical attention immediately.
