  • Know the Hazards – What is the environment? What is the working doing? What are the risks?
  • Meet the Right Safety Standard – Does your helmet comply with applicable requirements and standards?
  • Provide the Right Accessories – Do you need eye, face, and hearing protection?
  • Emphasis on Fit and Feel – Is the hard hat comfortable enough to wear all day?
