Wearing Hard Hats

-Always wear your hard hat while you are   working in areas where there are potential head   hazards.
- Adjust the suspension inside your hard hat so   that the hat sits comfortably, but securely on   your head.
- Inspect the shell of your hard hat for cracks,   gouges, and dents. Inspect the suspension   system for frayed or broken straps. If your hard   hat needs to be repaired, have it repaired     immediately or ask your employer for a new   one.
- Never paint, scratch or drill "air holes" in your   hard hat. You may apply reflective plastic tape   if you must work at night. Never use metal tape   on your helmet because it can conduct   electricity.
- Never carry personal belongings such as   cigarettes, lighters, or pens in your hard hat.
