Davis, Dennis ; Anderson, Leslie . 2011. Alternate Head Protection Available. 1151 2316P. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center. 4 p.

A recent redesign to the suspension system on the Bullard NFPA 1977-compliant hardhats has caused a limited number of users to complain about discomfort. The new suspension system provides less space between the hardhat and the user's head and may allow sharp corners to cause pressure points. Two models (front brim and full brim) of Morning Pride hardhat are NFPA 1977 compliant and may provide a suitable alternative. The user is required to install hook fastener tape strips (Velcro) inside the Morning Pride hardhats to attach the face and neck shroud.

Keywords: General Services Administration, GSA, hardhat, helmet, NFPA 1977 compliant, safety at work
