We Aren’t Into Popular

Safety isn't always about doing the popular thing.

Did you know that the standard for today’s construction hard hats has remained unchanged since 1965? While a hard hat is the construction worker’s main source of sex appeal, they really do very little to offer protection to the front, rear, and sides.

In 2021, we switched to a helmet style head protection for our crew. We got some pushback: the helmets looks different, there’s a goofy chin strap, they’re more expensive, practically no one else in our industry is wearing them, and did we mention they look different?

Here’s why:

  1. We all want to go home safely.
  2. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is part of the job.
  3. Safety isn’t always about doing the easy or popular thing.

Bottom line is that we want each of our crew members to go home every night. And if adding a chin strap increases that likelihood, sign us up.
