Hard hats and UK legislation

All workplaces are required by law to protect their workers from hazards and this is particularly true in the demanding construction and manufacturing industries. Understanding the laws that need to be followed to keep your workers safe from accidents and injuries can often prove difficult.

Rapid Fire Supplies aim to make the process easier, as BSIF accredited safety suppliers we check all of our products to ensure they comply with the relevant EU and UK safety legislation, and will always be happy to provide advice on the best products for your workplace.

While hazards may be best avoided, in some industries it is necessary to work in hazardous environments. In these circumstances, providing personal protective equipment, including hard hats, is a straightforward measure you can take to keep your employees’ risk of injury lower.

When selecting the right hard hats for your work site, it is important to stay up to date with the latest health and safety regulations. In the majority of cases and worksites, suitable head protection must conform to the British Standard BS EN397:1995, or equivalent.

Legally, employers must provide hard hats to employees and ensure that hard hats are worn on site when there is a risk of injury. It is important to ensure that all self-employed contractors are aware of the need to wear PPE and safety helmets when they are at your work site.

The EN397 Regulation also ensures that safety helmets are designed and built to protect workers from falling objects. Safety helmets are required to meet certain criteria regarding shock absorption, temperature resistance, lateral deformation and penetration resistance.

For more information on EN397’s legal requirements, the HSE explains the details of these requirements in its Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations.

Hard hats and protective helmets that comply with this legislation have been thoroughly tested to withstand impacts and protect the wearer’s skull.

Hard hats come in a variety of styles, shapes and colours to ensure that your employees are protected, regardless of the unique needs of the worksite. A number of these variations include:

  • Visors and chin guards to protect against any projectiles flying upwards
  • Adjustments made to allow for safety glasses to comfortably fit under the helmet’s visor
  • Additional safety lights that can be attached to the helmet for increased visibility
  • Shock and heat-resistant materials for adverse working conditions or working at heights
  • Options to attach ear protection, earmuffs and helmet lamps to your hard hat for a variety of working conditions
  • Hard hats with extruding visors or bills to increase visibility when looking up
  • Bright colours and fluorescent strips to increase visibility during all times of the day and night
  • Venting around the helmet to increase comfort in hot working conditions

These are just a few of the added features to consider when selecting construction hard hats, builders’ hats and safety helmets of all kinds. It is important to properly reflect on the individual needs of the worksite, and the workers’ various roles, when selecting a helmet with specific properties.

In demanding environments, blows to the head may not always be avoidable, but with the use of hard hats, the long term or even fatal consequences can generally be avoided.

Our hard hats offer comfortable protection, giving you, your workforce and their families peace of mind.

If you think that your work doesn’t warrant full hard hat protection, you can take a look at our bump caps, which aren’t as bulky but still provide protection.
