Hard Hats at work in slow motion

There are several types of hard hats that can be worn in workplaces where falling objects may be a potential hazard. Construction sites are a great example of where helmets are commonly worn. Helmets are available at varying price points and may be made of slightly different materials depending on the price and quality. However, all helmets are similar in that they contain a suspension system inside that fits around the wearer’s head. The suspension helps protect the head from injury and allows the helmet to absorb most of the impact. While falling objects can present hazards to the body as well, the head is especially vulnerable and requires sturdy protection.

Cowboy Hard Hats and You

Safety hard hats are designed to withstand different types of impact and are classified as either Type I or Type II. A Type I helmet is designed to protect the head from objects falling from directly above the wearer. Alternatively, Type II helmets can protect from a blow to the side of the head. Helmets are also classified based on the degree of electrical protection they provide. A Class E hat is designed to protect the wearer from electrical hazards up to 20,000 volts. Class G helmets can only withstand up to 2,2000 volts. Class C hard hats are vented and do not have an electrical protection rating. Helmets should be replaced if they suffer an impact or 5 years from the date of manufacture.
