Hard Hats - One of the most common problems with current hard hat designs is they aren’t built with the versatility to support accessories and additional PPE. Users end up modifying them by drilling holes and using zip ties which weakens the i n t eg r i t y o f t he ha r d ha t . The Milwaukee hard hats feature six total accessory slots, four BOLT™ accessory slots, and two universal accessory slots, giving users sever- al ways to customize their hard hat for the jobsite. All hard hats are type 1 and offered in both Class C and Class E, and available in either a front or full brim style. Making sure your crew has the right equipment for the job includes PPE.
