One of the most commonly used forms of head protection, hard hats are a convenient, comfortable solution to help protect from potential impact from falling or flying objects. Some models can help protect from contact with low and higher voltage conductors and electrical shock or burn. Hard hats are required to comply with ANSI Z89.1 in the United States.
The two most common types of face protection are faceshields and welding helmets. Faceshields are more commonly used across a wider variety of applications where chemical splash hazards and flying debris fragments are present.
Faceshields should be considered as only part of a larger system to protect the whole head, as they do not always protect the top of the head from impact hazards. That’s why it’s important to look for faceshields that either integrate the functionalities of or work with other types of PPE—such as hard hats—to help address head impact hazards. Always consider the potential hazards of any worksite before selecting the type of face protection you will use.
Wearing the right head protection—bump caps, hard hats, or safety helmets—can help reduce the potential for injury. This short eBook explains your choices for head protection by industry and job, features and benefits, longevity and care requirements, as well as compliance information.
