Bump caps may sometimes resemble a baseball cap or they can look like a hard hat that is made from thin plastic. The shell of this type of hat is compact and will typically come with a sun visor. Bump caps are also padded to ensure that they provide the user with the right level of protection.
As the name suggests, these hats are designed for workers in environments where they are likely to bump their heads due to low obstacles. Bump caps can provide protection if there is mild contact and help avoid issues such as bruising, disorientation and cuts.
Bump caps are also comfortable for workers to wear and are designed to provide safety when moving around on the job. As such, choosing the right PPE head protection for your business is about understanding the regulations as well as the different protection options available for specific types of industrial work.
