November 6, 2009, Newsletter Issue #192: OSHA Head Protection Regulations

Tip of the Week

According to the OSHA regulations entitled, “Head Protection – 29 CFR 1910.135,” it is ensured employers take an active role in their employees wearing hard hats, in areas where they are at risk. These areas include places where heavy objects might fall on them, or where there is a risk of falling on the ground.

One important requirement to take notice of within the OSHA regulation entitled, “Head Protection,” is 29 CFR 1910.135 (b)(1) which states hard hats bought since 1994 must comply with the standard ANSI Z89.1-1997 “American National Standard for Personnel Protection-Protective Headwear for Industrial Workers-Requirements.” This is especially important for employers who provide hard hats for their staff.
