Head & Face Protection
Head protection such as hard hats are mandatory in most industrial workplaces to protect workers from hazards such as electrical shocks and burns. Hard hats are made especially for high-risk environments, unlike ordinary bump caps, that do not have the impact to bounce off hard elements to protect the worker’s head.
Regular cleaning and inspection to ensure no holes, cracks or damages will extend the useful life of the head protection. Cleaning agents may weaken the exterior of the hard hats, which may eliminate the electrical resistance. Instead, simply rinse it with normal temperature water. Furthermore, do try not to keep the hard hats directly under the sunlight, as the ultra-violet (UV) rays and heat will cause damage to it.
Face protection comes from either face shields or headgears, that provide head and face protection in working environments with sparks, chips, and debris.
This safety system includes ratchet headgear and a polycarbonate face shield. An adjustable thirteen-position ratchet suspension and five-position crown strap offer customized settings for individual users. The clear, molded Faceshield provides unrestricted visibility and high-impact protection.
Workers performing tasks in which flying sparks or particles are present should wear protection to shield their face and head. Industries in which this is typically true include metalworking, utilities, and woodworking. Because the shield does not fully enclose the face, protective eyewear should also be worn to safeguard the eyes.
