Centurion partners with brain injury charity Headway as part of its goal to drive standards in above-the-neck safety
12 September 2019
Leading safety manufacturer Centurion is proud to announce its partnership with Headway, the UK brain injury charity. Headway provides a range of services to support individuals, families and carers of those affected by brain injury and to raise awareness of its causes. The partnership centers around two shared goals. To raise funds to help Headway continue to develop its vital network of support for brain injury survivors. And to reduce the incidence of brain injury through greater awareness and understanding within construction and industrial sectors.
Driven by its commitment to making safe safer, Centurion hopes the partnership will set a precedent for broader industry collaboration to understand and reduce instances of brain injury at work. The partnership kick starts a year of activity to promote head safety as Centurion celebrates its 140-year anniversary.
Centurion CEO Jeff Ward, comments, “We are proud to partner with an organisation that shares our goals of reducing brain injury in the workplace. Headway is a respected, forward-thinking charity making a real difference to the lives of those affected by brain injury. Working together we hope to drive the understanding and behaviours that will keep today’s generation of workers safer than ever.”
Headway Deputy Chief Executive, Luke Griggs, adds: “At Headway, we are passionate about improving life after brain injury and helping people to rebuild their lives after it strikes.
“A brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time, with someone in the UK admitted to hospital every 90 seconds. As well as supporting those affected, we are determined to do all we can to reduce the number of injuries that occur each year. “Even a minor head injury can have a major impact and this partnership with Centurion will help us to increase awareness and understanding within the construction industry of the importance of protecting our heads and brains from injury.”
