This topic is one of the most complicated ones as there is quite a fierce debate both online and offline. The reason for this debate is that there is no real answer to be found. The official Australian Standard says that the use of stickers on hard hats is acceptable if they do not interfere with the actual function of the hard hat which is that of protection. The sticker should not compromise the functionality or look of the hard hat in any way that it may lose any part of its effectiveness as a means of protection.
How Stickers May Interfere with Hard Hats
There are a variety of ways that a hard hat may become compromised via a sticker. The first of these is when a sticker obscures any deformation or damage that the hard hat may have faced. This results in that damage being hidden from view and thus puts the user in danger. This may about if the sticker is too large or is made of colors that are solid. Either of those two features is enough to compromise the integrity of the hard hat and thus make it less effective than it would be without the sticker.
There are also other ways that a sticker may negate the usefulness of a hard hat. The adhesive that is used with the sticker can often result in diminishing the quality of the plastic. This is not an immediate threat as the corrosion doesn’t work that quickly but it can have an effect in the long run. It can weaken the structure of the hard hat and make it more susceptible to breaking. The reason why this happens is because the adhesive interacts with the hard plastic and changes it for the worse.
Why Our Stickers Are Suitable For Hard Hats
The stickers that we make are suitable for two main reasons. The first is that our stickers can feature a clear stock which allows you to easily notice if anything goes awry with the hard hat. That feature allows you to place the sticker anywhere you wish without compromising the actual purpose behind the hard hat which is safety.
Our stickers also built according to your customization which is the second reason why they can work on hard hats. If you let us know that you plan on using the stickers on hard hats then we can suggest designs and ideas that are well-suited for use on a hard hat. We also make sure to use eco-friendly and non-corrosive materials when making our stickers so you can be sure that they won’t adversely affect the performance of your hard hats.
How You Can Use Stickers on Hard Hats
There are a variety of ways that you can utilize stickers on hard hats. The first thing that you should consider is making people stand out. Giving supervisors their own stickers allows them to stand out and thus increase the efficiency with which operations take place. You could also increase the morale of the workers by assigning them stickers for continued excellence or sustained safety regulations etc. The use of stickers on hard hats is only limited by your imagination.
