Head Protection

    It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that their employees wear a protective helmet when working in areas where there is a potential for injury to the head from impact with an object or from falling objects (29 CFR 1910.135). In addition OSHA requires that employers provide eye and face protection whenever necessary to protect against chemical, environmental, radiological or mechanical irritants and hazards. Twenty-percent of workplace fatalities are related to head trauma (Tiesman et al., 2011).
Head injuries may be caused by falling or flying objects, or by bumping the head against a fixed object. Protective helmets must do three things; Resist penetration, absorb the shock of a blow, protect against electrical shock. Head injuries may be prevented by the selection and use of appropriate head protection.

    Hard hats are designed to provide protection from impact and penetration hazards caused by falling objects. Hard hats must be worn when working below other workers who are using tools and materials which could fall. OSHA standard [ANSI Z89.1-1986]
