Caring for Your Hard Hat

Because your hard hat is an important piece of personal protective equipment, you should:

- Clean your hard hat at least once a month (or   as needed) to remove oil, grease, chemicals,   and sweat that can collect in and around your   hat.
- You can clean your hat by soaking it in a   solution of mild soap and hot water for 5-10   minutes. Rinse with clear water, wipe, and let   air dry. Or, follow the manufacturer's   recommendations for cleaning your hat.
- Because sunlight and heat can damage the   suspension of your hat, always store your hat in   a clean, dry, and cool location.
