Honeywell has announced a hard hat with 24 per cent more back-of-head coverage than standard Type I hard hats to protect workers from potentially catastrophic head injuries due to slips and falls. The patented shell design of the new North Force hard hat provides increased rear-head coverage without restricting range of motion, while an innovative rear-impact attenuator absorbs force to minimize injuries, says Honeywell. The North Force hard hat is ideally suited for upstream oil workers, miners or workers in other industries in which slippery or icy conditions exist. The North Force hard hat is constructed of a unique, lightweight shell material that offers high-impact resistance and stands up to extreme temperature changes ranging from -30 F to 120 F. Its patented six-point suspension system with five adjustment areas, combined with its robust chin strap, allow for an ultra-customized, comfortable fit and exceptional retention, according to the manufacturer. An ergonomically designed ratchet allows for quick adjustment, even while wearing gloves. The hat is easily worn with other forms of PPE and accessories, and fits comfortably with thermal liners and bulky winter gear. Available in six shell colours — white, yellow, orange, blue, red and green — the North Force hard hat can be customized with logos or safety slogans. North Force meets ANSI and CSA Type I Class E requirements.
