10 - PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT

Head Protection

The wearing of adequate and appropriate head protection in the

workplace is vital. For OHS stakeholders refer to AS/NZS 1801

which provides the basis for correct selection.

Under the criteria of Australian Standards several factors need

to be considered in relation to the life expectancy of a hard hat

and its components.

1)

AS/NZS1801 states that safety caps and safety helmets

have a recommended life of up to three years from the date

of issue.

2)

The hard hat harness should, as best practice, be replaced

every two years.

3)

Before using a hard hat always check for cracks,

fading or abnormal wear, dull or chalky surface and

brittleness. Replace immediately if any of these factors

are present.

4)

Reduce exposure to extended heat and sunlight by

storing in a bag or locker rather than a vehicle parcel shelf

as this will assist with maintaining the integrity of the head

protector.

What Type of Head Protection Should Be Selected?

Type 1 ABS Safety Cap -

This is the most commonly

worn head protection in construction and general industrial

applications. It comes with or without a gutter for rain and

chemical dust considerations.

Type 2 Polycarbonate Safety Cap -

in high heat environments.

Bump Cap -

Isn’t manufactured to AS/NZS1801 and generally

used to protect against scrapes and minor knocks in domestic

situations.

Vented -

Generally selected when ventilation to assist with

cooling the head is required.

Unvented -

Is best used in areas where dust and chemical

hazards exist.
