Hard Hats and Safety Helmets Hard hats and safety helmets protect the wearer’s head from falling objects in high risk or dangerous areas of the workplace. They also protect workers who are exposed to chemical spills and electrical hazards. Hard hats and safety helmets have a hard and durable exterior which absorbs impact to the head. Some also act as an insulator to protect against electrical shocks. There also may be protective padding inside the hard hat, with an adjustable head harness to secure the helmet. 

Australian Standards- Information Hard Hats A hard hat is equipped with internal webbing that spreads the weight of the helmet (and therefore the shock of impact) evenly over the entire area of the helmet and top of the head. The internal harness also provides a 30 mm "buffer zone" between the shell and the head that will reduce the likelihood of impact from a falling object being transferred to the skull.
