Hard hats are required for construction sites, working underground/enclosed areas, demolition or renovation work, high voltage and other industrial areas. The OSHA standard incorporates the ANSI Z89.1 standard and employers will need hard hats that are in compliance.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) represented one-quarter of all construction fatalities during an eight-year study period.
