September Safety Topic

National Concussion Awareness Day Is September 16

Up to 50% of concussions go undiagnosed. It’s not uncommon for people to suffer from a concussion and carry on with their regular activities like going to work. They don’t realize that another bump on the head could result in second impact syndrome, which could be fatal or lead to permanent brain damage.

Concussion symptoms don’t always show up right away following an injury. It may be days or weeks before symptoms become apparent. Even then, many people don’t take their symptoms as seriously as they should, or mistake them for other conditions.

Know the common symptoms of a concussion:

  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Slowed reaction time
  • Drowsiness
  • Fog-like state/inability to pay attention
  • Difficulty remembering
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
