    Hard hats and your injury claim in Skibo

    What is a hard hat and why is it worn?

    A hard hat is a strong plastic helmet that is worn mostly in the workplace, for example on construction sites, to protect the head from injury by falling objects, debris, bad weather and electric shock.

    The hard hat or helmet is designed with internal suspension to spread the weight of the helmet over the top of the head.

    There is a gap inside the hard hat of 1.2 inches between the head and the shell of the helmet, to reduce the impact from falling debris, for example, on the wearer’s head.  To strengthen the helmet, some are designed with a mid line reinforcement ridge to provide additional protection.

    Types of hard hat

    Depending on the work environment and role of the worker, hard hats can be fitted with additional accessories to ensure that the worker remains as safe as possible. These can include:

    • visors to protect the eyes as a safety visor or a welding visor to ensure that health and safety practices are adhered to
    • ear protectors to ensure that noise pollution is minimised
    • mirrors for increased rear view visibility
    • headlight mounting to attach a light to and leave the hands free to work
    • chinstrap to ensure a good fit and reduce slipping
    • insulating side pads to ensure that the wearer doesn’t suffer frostbite working in extreme conditions

    Hard hats should be worn whenever there is a risk of injury to the wearer.   Some areas are designated as hard hat areas and they must be worn at all times.  It is the duty of employees to wear the hard hat that has been provided to them by their employer whenever they are required to do so.  If they are self-employed, then it is their responsibility to provide their own hard hat and ensure it is in good condition and worn appropriately.
