Protect your supervisors and workers from falling debris with our durable hard hats. Choose from white or yellow hard hats, full brim or cap style, vented or unvented — all with adjustable suspension for the perfect fit. With so many choices, you're sure to find the right combination for your workers and the environment they work in, whether it's indoors or out.
Cap Style Hard Hats
Choose from vented cap style hats (meet ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2014, Type I, Class C requirements) or unvented (meet ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2014, Type I, Class E & G requirements).
For extra protection, choose full brim hard hats in two styles: vented (meet ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2014, Type I, Class C requirements) or unvented (meet ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2014, Type I, Class E & G requirements).
Employees are likely to use comfortable PPE. Employers should consider comfort, fit and style while selecting PPE. An unvented hard hat can trap heat and humidity, causing discomfort to its user. Using a vented hard hat promotes airflow that keeps workers comfortable. Use a non-vented protective helmet if electrical hazards are present. Vents are a potential access point for electrical hazards. Avoid using vented helmets when the highest level of electrical protection is needed.
Vented hard hats provide increased air circulation for greater comfort and meet ANSI Z89.1, Type I, Class C requirements.
Unvented hard hats meet ANSI Z89.1, Type I, Class E requirements, which means they protect against electrical hazards.
WEARING A HARD HAT CORRECTLY
Wearing a hard hat incorrectly can lead to serious injuries. Workers should not wear their hat with the brim on the back of their head, because it won't absorb the shock if they are hit by high voltage. The suspension is very important. If there are signs of a faulty suspension, it should be replaced immediately. Likewise, if the shell is cracked or fading, it's also time to buy a new one. It is recommended to replace hard hats at least once every year.
Hard Hat Maintenance
Workers must care for their hard hat to ensure it functions correctly according to manufacturer recommendations. Avoid exposing your protective helmet to excessive temperature extremes, impacts, chemical exposures, abrasive cleaners, rough treatment or other types of harsh wear and tear. These hazards can reduce the helmet’s service life and protective properties. Damage or poor maintenance may result in reduced user protection.

Hard hats are designed to offer workers protection from impacts and shock. All J. J. Keller® SAFEGEAR® hard hats meet ANSI Z89.1’s Type I requirements. Our hard hats are further classified as meeting one of ANSI’s electrical classes: C, E, or G. Hard hat colors, like white and yellow, can be used to identify workers. OSHA and ANSI don’t have hard hat color requirements in general workplace applications. J.J. Keller offers two hard hat colors based on generally accepted meanings in the industry.
