Safety helmets are essential PPE in the workplace, and are usually required when working in the construction trades or anywhere that you are at risk from falling objects and glancing blows to the head, such as building sites. Some hard hats are designed to carry further peripherals, such as ear defenders and even torches for low light situations, and depending on the worksite, can be either vented or unvented. Don't take any risks; ensure your safety by making a safety helmet part of your work wear attire.
