Workplace hard hat safety survey results

Mon 21 Sep 2020

Construction sites without the correct protection can potentially be very dangerous places, especially when it comes to head injuries. To help understand the scale of the issue and identify potential areas for improvement, Headway and leading safety manufacturer Centurion surveyed people who work in the construction industry to find out more about their understanding of head injury, personal protection equipment and the support they receive from their employers.

Brain injury is more common than you think, and its impact can be life-changing for both the individual hurt but also their wider family. Ensuring your head protection is worn and cared for correctly is key to remaining safe.

Head injury and workplace safety facts:

A total of 486 participants completed our survey, which remained open from 27th January to 30th April 2020.

Participants were asked a series of questions relating to their knowledge of concussion and safety at work. Many were multiple-choice questions allowing participants to select zero or more responses.
