June: Brain Injury Awareness Month
Because June is Brain Injury Awareness Month, WorkSafeNB encourages all workers to protect their heads. For example, hard hats are required when workers are exposed to hazards that could cause a head injury. Hard hats must conform to specific standards and be worn properly. And when there’s a risk of a fall from an elevation, employers must provide their workers with the appropriate fall protection system and instruct them on the proper use.
