Hard Hat Suspensions
Hard hat suspensions are a key component to consider when shopping for the right hat. Hard hat suspensions help to disperse the impact from falling objects to offer even more security and prevent serious injuries. Units should be replaced every 12 months to keep your safety unit up to date and working.
Suspension units ensure your hat is secure and can offer extra functionality. They provide comfort, so workers don’t have to sacrifice safety. For additional comfort, add a hard hat sweatband.
It’s important to note that suspensions are made to fit certain hard hat styles and models. Do not mix suspension and helmet sizes and be sure the sizes match (Example: standard-size suspension with standard-size helmet). Use only MSA suspensions on an MSA helmet.
*Failure to comply with the above will reduce the energy-absorbing ability of the protective helmet, which can result in serious injury or death.
