The latest edition of CSA Z94.1 - Industrial Protective Headwear - Performance, Selection, Care and Use
joins our suite of Personal Protective Equipment standards and applies to protective headwear for industrial, construction, mining, utility, and forestry workers. It defines the areas of the head that are to be protected and basic performance requirements.
According to OHS Regulations - Section 12.4
, only when there is a foreseeable danger to a workerís head at a work site is industrial headwear required. Employers can help to reduce the risk of head injuries sustained in the workplace by conducting a hazard assessment. Based on the results of the hazard assessment you will then be able to decide if the worksite would require workers to use industrial protective headwear.
Highlights of Z94.1:
- Applies to protective headwear for industrial, construction, mining, utility, and forestry workers
- Defines the areas of the head that are to be protected and includes basic performance requirements for dielectric strength, impact attenuation, penetration resistance, passive retention (stability), and shell flammability and liner ignition resistance
