How to get legal help in St James


Had a hard hat injury? Wondering how to get legal help in St James?

Hard hats are a common safety feature on construction and industrial sites, as it is a legal and statutory requirement to wear a safety helmet whilst working on site. The main contractor or employer must ensure that all visitors and workers to the site wear safety helmets to avoid potential injuries to the head from falling building materials or debris. Before the introduction of hard hats, the death rate on construction sites was much higher than it is today. Talk to us today if you’re wondering how to get legal help in St James.

Hard hats have come a long way since they were first developed in the USA by a mining equipment owner, E W Bullard, who made safety hats from leather to keep his workers safe. After World War I, the owner’s son returned from war with a steel helmet and this was altered to become the first safety helmet.

The Hard Boiled Hat was designed and made of steamed canvas, black paint and glue. The first widespread use of safety helmets by workers was in the building of the Hoover Dam in 1931 and later the Golden Gate Bridge in 1933. Prior to this, hats were covered in tar and left to set in the sun by the shipyard workers, to protect them from falling objects on the dock side.

Hard hats are now manufactured of high density polyethylene (HDPE) or engineering resins. They are bright yellow in colour in order to be clearly visible from a distance and from above. The safety helmet has numerous features that are designed to make wearing the helmet more comfortable such as upturned edges which act as a rainwater gutter and avoid dripping water on to the facial area.

Other optional extras include mirrors, a visor, ear protectors, a chin strap, a flashlight and even thermal insulation for colder climates. Many companies use their own designed logo on the front of the helmet to promote their businesses.
