Construction industry has most traumatic brain injuries
A recent study shows that the construction industry has the most workers suffer traumatic brain injuries than any other portion of the U.S. workforce.
The study, titled The Epidemiology of Fatal Occupational Traumatic Brain Injury, was conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Heath and Safety.
Another thing the study revealed was that falls have replaced motor-vehicle accidents as the leading cause of construction worker fatalities.
Employers are required to follow specific safety and health regulations. Some ways to help prevent traumatic brain injuries include wearing proper safety gear and using protective barriers.
