The last thing anyone would consider happening while they were at work would be to become injured in some way. For the most part, all workers are in a safe environment which is made so thanks to the consideration and care of their employers. Health and safety rules demand that all workplaces are safe in which to work and are not filled with potential hazards that have not been dealt with. As such, the likelihood of having any kind of accident, such as being knocked unconscious at work, would be extremely rare.
However, there is the potential that accidents may happen in some situations. For example, some people may find there are hazards which are not properly identified and/or dealt with in advance. There may be a need for people to wear safety helmets while working in a certain area. Even if this need is identified, it may be that the company involved does not provide helmets for people to wear. In a situation like this, it could potentially mean that they are at greater risk of an accident occurring in some way.
How severe could getting knocked unconscious be?
The outcome of any head injury could be severe, depending on a variety of factors. For example, a brief knock to the head may not seem bad at all, but it could later result in the person becoming very ill indeed. Even a brief loss of consciousness should be checked out, and very often the person will be kept in hospital at least overnight in order to determine whether they are okay or not. This means that they can receive urgent medical treatment if required at any stage. As such, no one should have the potential to be knocked out.
