Hard Hat Awareness Week
We are proud to support Hard Hat Awareness week.
Our Commercial Construction Director, Tom Rose and our Head of Health & Safety Alan Irwin talk through the evolution of the hard hat and its importance.
Hard Hat Awareness Week was introduced to drive awareness of brain injury through activities designed to encourage best practice around safety equipment.
The impact of a brain injury can be life-changing for both the injured person but also their wider family and friends. Wearing a hard hat, maintaining and storing it appropriately, and being more concussion and head injury aware are all vital to keeping hard hat wearers safe. We want to remind people about the importance of wearing hard hats and taking any impact on the head seriously. Even a minor brain injury can have a major impact, so take time to stop work, report the incident and recover fully before returning to work.
