Hard hats are protective helmets which are worn for protection. Hard hats are used in workplaces like construction sites, mining industry and in warehouses to protect against head injuries from falling objects, electric shock, bad weather, debris and bumping the head against objects.
Different colours may be used for different roles i.e. managers, engineers, carpenters etc. while in large projects employees of each company may wear the same colour to identify them.
Stickers with company logos and names of workers are used so new managers, supervisors and foremen can know the workers by name and in some instances qualifications and training skills of the workers is added on the sticker.
Employers should provide workers with free hard hats. If this is not done a lawyer in Canary Wharf can be consulted.
