Anatomy of a Hard Hat

As per regulation requirements, hard hats, or protective helmets, must consist of a shell and suspension system. The shell is the outside of a hard hat.  It is rounded in shape to protect the crown of the head. A suspension system is used to prevent the hat from falling off and is usually in the form of a headband placed inside the hard hat. When used properly, the shell and suspension system work symbiotically to absorb the force from a strike to the head. Hard hats must be made out of water-resistant and slow-burning material.

Accessories that can be fitted into hard hats include:

  • a retaining strap is worn under the chin or at the nape of the neck
  • a bracket and cable clip for the attachment of a lamp
  • an eye shield, face shield or welding shield
  • a wide brim for additional shade in hot climates
  • neck flaps for protection against weather, molten metal splash, hot substances and similar
  • a lining for cold conditions
  • earmuffs.
