I'm fixing to switch jobs and I haven't had to wear a hard hat in a long time. What are some reviews on the hard hats you wear?
i've seen these on jobs, and i'm guessing they are lighter than
a popcorn's fart, but they are a bit too much money for me....
your employer is required to provide hardhats, and other PPE,
in most situations.
Kevlar is not conductive. Did you look at the rating for full brim Kevlar?Not sure, but the first thing I looked for in that link was an electrical rating. They are type C, not E, so they arent certified for electrical safety.. No idea if kevlar is conductive.
OSHA requires an electrically rated hard hat anytime a worker might contact electricity.
If a company does not require the employee to wear a electrically rated hard hat and than the employee ends up getting a shock of say a temp cable or splice the company is going to get fined for it.
Seems like a no brainier to use an electrically rated hard hat, it makes just as much sense as making workers wear hard hats when they are not working under anything.
