Smithfield, RI — Honeywell Safety Products has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 82,500 hard hats, stating that the equipment may provide insufficient protection from impact and put wearers at risk of head injury.
A construction worker removes his hard hat because he is too warm. An engineer refuses to wear head protection, as she has “never been hurt before.” A utility worker thinks hard hats make him look silly and removes his every chance he gets.
Built with injection-molded fiberglass, the Roughneck P1A from Fibre-Metal offers heavy-duty head protection featuring our patented SuperEight suspension and a full-brim design for added protection and comfort.
Let’s say you are a safety professional at a construction company. And let’s say that your workers have all types of heads – oval, circular, long, square, you name it. Why would you ask all of them to wear identically shaped hard hats for protection?
