A serious head injury can happen in the blink of an eye on a construction site. It is a common sight to see workers on a roof or scaffold tossing tools or materials to the ground, often without checking the ground for clearance first. Even while wearing a hard hat, a heavy tool or building material dropped from a height or swung carelessly overhead can result in a permanent head injury.
