Prioritizing Safety from the Top Down
Prioritizing Safety from the Top Down




September 6, 2023

To enhance the safety of workers in industrial and construction settings, there is a shift away from traditional hard hats to more comprehensive safety helmets. While conventional hard hats primarily protect against falling objects, they have limitations in safeguarding workers from other potential head injuries such as those resulting from falls, slips, and trips. Construction sites, in particular, present various hazards, making it crucial to improve head protection. Falls are a significant cause of fatal incidents in the construction industry, prompting a move toward the ANSI Z89.1 Type II Safety Helmet, which offers enhanced impact protection. This shift represents a critical step in worker safety.
