When to Replace a Hard Hat:
Each day, workers should inspect their hard hats to look for any visible damage, like cracks or holes. If damage is present, the hard hat should be replaced. Hard hats should also be replaced if they are subject to any type of impact. Keep in mind that other elements, such as chemicals, UV rays and extreme heat, can diminish a hard hat’s durability. If a hard hat is faded or feels different, it may be time to replace it.
