    Five signs you may be concussed

    Every year in the UK, thousands of people are injured in accidents at work. If you’ve been injured and you believe that the accident was caused by your employer’s negligence, you could claim work accident compensation.

    Types of work injury

    The most common types of work accidents and injuries include:

    • slips, trips and falls
    • falls from height
    • accidents involving moving vehicles
    • fractures and dislocations
    • head injuries
    • repetitive strain injury
    • back pain

    Spotting signs of concussion

    Concussion is a common complication of falls and accidents, which result in head injuries. With concussion, the symptoms may not be apparent straight away and careful monitoring is recommended; concussion can be very dangerous and it’s beneficial to be aware of potential symptoms. Here are five signs you may be concussed:

    1. Loss of consciousness immediately after an accident or a blow to the head
    2. Experiencing memory loss
    3. Blurred vision, double vision and seeing stars; this may also be accompanied by dizziness
    4. Confusion and feeling disorientated
    5. Headaches

    Preventing head injuries at work

    All UK employers are required by law to comply with the latest health and safety guidelines in order to reduce the risk of the workforce sustaining work injuries and work-related illnesses. Failure to adhere to these measures may increase the risk of work accidents and employers may be liable for resulting injury claims. Measures, which may be taken to prevent head injuries at work include:

    • ensuring flooring is kept in good condition and clearing slip and trip hazards, such as litter, boxes and trolleys
    • providing suitable protective equipment, including helmets
    • carrying out frequent risk assessment
    • recording all accidents and learning from them to reduce the risk of similar scenarios in the future
    • ensuring that all members of staff have the relevant training
