Tip & How-To about Work Safety
With so many different brand of hard hats there are all kinds of rules and for how a hard hat is meant to be worn. Never fear there are a few points that they all agree on and these are the ones that you should always keep in mind when you head off to work.
First you want to make sure that the suspension straps on the inside of the hat fit properly. You can adjust them by moving the pin to different holes much like you do to change a belt. The plastic of the hat isn't supposed to sit on your head like a regular hat. There has to be space between your head and the hat to help 'cusion' the impact of something hitting your head.
The ******** the back of the hat, one that sticks out lower should be tight on the nape of your neck. This strap helps in keeping the hat in place.
If your hard hat has a chin strap make sure that you have it adjusted properly because this will keep your hat on your head when bending over or looking up. The chin stap should sit on your chin suggly and not be looped under your chin in the space between your chin and your neck.
If you are finding it difficult to get the hat to fit properly never use fillers to make it fit better. You might just have a hat thats not the right size for your head. Using a filler can change the effectiveness of the hat and make it dangerous to use. Its better to ask for a new one then find your own solution.

Cowboy hats can be unisex, but there are some cowboy hats that are designed for women as they have more decorations, ribbons, jewels etc.
