Safety Hard Hats
If in your line of work, you're frequently exposed to the potential for falling objects, it's likely that you are required to wear some type of hard hat. Individuals in construction, forestry, manufacturing, engineering and many other industries commonly wear safety hard hats to keep their heads protected. At Safety Company, we offer a full array of safety hard hats, from full-brim and aluminum models to the popular, billed polyethylene models. Read More(+)
You should be sure to consider a number of factors when purchasing a safety hard hat for your job:
- Electrical exposure. There are three classes of hard hat - C, E and G - that offer different levels of protection from electricity. If electrocution is a hazard at your workplace, avoid Class C (Conductive) helmets, which will not protect you if you come into contact with a current.
- Other personal protective equipment (PPE). If you're required to wear additional PPE to perform the functions of your job, especially gear like safety glasses, goggles or face shields, you should purchase a hard hat that can accommodate them.
- Requirements in your industry. While the overall standard for hard hats, ANSI Z89.1, ensures protection from impact hazards, your workplace may be required to meet additional ANSI certifications.
- Unique circumstances in your job. If you work consistently in extreme weather, hot or cold, you may want to invest in a hard hat that has built-in protections for your position like additional insulation or a cooling shield.
Our goal at Safety Company is to be able to meet all of these particular circumstances, so that any individual can find the perfect hard hat in our online store, whatever his or her job requirements or style preferences.
