Hard hats or safety helmets act as the first line of defense against head injury, but they only work when they are worn correctly. Thus, it’s safe to say safety helmets save lives and reduce the risk of brain injury.
The more prepared workers are, the less chance for accidents and injuries at a construction site. Safety helmets are designed to protect the head against falling objects and the side of the head, eyes, and neck from any unpredictable impacts, bumps, scrapes, and electrical exposure, etc. Hard hats or safety helmets are crucial features of worksite safety, since on average hundreds of workers per year suffer from fatal head injuries or even death.
