Concussion Awareness, response, and management

The entertainment production community, working with the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit, is happy to make the Concussion Awareness Training Tool’s (CATT) Concussion Awareness flowchart available for employers, supervisors, and workers in B.C’s arts and entertainment industries.

This flowchart outlines a pathway that should be followed to respond to and manage a suspected concussion to workers specifically in the motion picture, television, performing arts, and live events industries. Especially beneficial for stunt performers, this pathway outlines red flags, concussion signs and symptoms, and treatment suggestions.
