Safety head protection is a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) designed to protect the head from potential hazards in the workplace. It can include helmets, hard hats, bump caps, and other types of headgear.
Hard hats are commonly used in construction, mining, and other industries where workers are at risk of falling objects or head injuries. They are made of rigid materials like plastic or fiberglass and typically have a suspension system inside to absorb shock and provide comfort.
Bump caps are designed to protect against minor head bumps and scrapes and are often used in warehouse or manufacturing environments. They are made of lightweight materials like plastic or foam and have a softer shell than hard hats.
There are also specialized headgear options for specific hazards, such as welding helmets, face shields, and forestry helmets with ear and eye protection.
