What is blunt trauma/impact based assault?

An attack from a knife, spiked object or gun presents a more serious threat of death or serious injury, but blunt trauma (blows from blunt objects such as baseball bats, bricks, kicks) is a more frequent threat for many staff. As with all threats, as well as choosing a vest that protects from blunt trauma it’s important to choose a flexible and lightweight vest to allow your staff to manoeuvre easily away from threats.
