September Safety Topic 🧠
National Concussion Awareness Day is Friday, September 15th, 2023.
A concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Doctors may describe these injuries as “mild” because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious. Understanding the signs and symptoms of a concussion can help you get better quickly. Please refer to the graphic below for signs of a concussion.
