When a hard hat shows signs of wear and tear to either the helmet shell and the harness it should be replaced. It should also be replaced after any impact that would have caused the wearer injury as the integrity of the structure will have been compromised.
Although there is no set service life for hard hats, we recommend replacement after no more than 5 years.
In-use, head protection gear is generally treated with a lack of care, often being thrown or dropped, used as a receptacle or carried on the rear window shelf of a vehicle. None of these actions are conducive to continued performance so ProChoice recommends that wearers regularly inspect both the helmet shell and its harness for signs of wear and tear and to store in a cool, dry place when not in use.
