TYPES & CLASS STANDARDS
Protective hard hats are classified according to the specific impact and electrical performance requirements they are designed to meet. All protective hard hats in accordance with this standard shall meet Type I impact requirements. In addition, all hard hats are further classified as meeting Class C, Class G, or Class E electrical requirements.
Type I: Hard hats intended to reduce the force of impact resulting from a blow only to the top of the head.
Type II: Hard hats intended to reduce the force of impact resulting from a blow which may receive limited protection odd center, lateral, or to the top of the head.
Class C (Conductive): Class C hard hats are not intended to provide protection against contact with electrical conductors.
Class G (General): Class G hard hats are intended to reduce the danger of contact exposure to low-voltage conductors. Test samples are proof-tested at 2,200 volts (phase to ground). However, this voltage is not as an indication of the voltage at which the hard hat protects the wearer.
Class E (Electrical): Class E hard hats are intended to reduce the danger of exposure to higher-voltage conductors. Test samples are proof-tested at 20,000 volts (phase to ground). However, this voltage is not intended as an indication of the voltage at which the hard hat protects the wearer.
Reverse Donning: Reverse-wearing option hard hats must pass force transmission requirements whether they are worn facing frontward or backwards in accordance with the manufacturer’s wearing instructions.
