Watch your head!
You’re required to have the right kind of hard hat if there's any potential for head injury from falling objects.
The first thing you need to know when choosing any kind of head protection are the risks that you’re exposing yourself to. Exposed beams, pipes, electrical systems or falling objects are just a few of the most common hazards on any job site.
Remember when you were a kid and your teacher told you to put on your ‘thinking cap’? Well, your old ‘thinking cap’ has a whole new meaning when you’re on a dangerous job site.
Wearing the right head protection is the only way to be sure you don’t end up with a serious blow to your melon.
Check out some of these tips on choosing hard hats for work to make sure you don't do any more damage to your head than you already have!
