Safety Headgear: Rights and Responsibilities

In 2021, the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation requirements for safety headgear changed. Under the revised requirement, employers must take steps to eliminate or reduce head injury risks before relying on safety headgear such as hard hats. This resource for workers describes the changes to the requirements. It also includes a process map describing the steps you can take if religious headwear or other reasons prevent you from wearing a hard hat in the workplace.
