Are you wearing the right coloured hat?

Highways for England have recently annouced that from 1 January 2017 that where a Highways for England construction/maintenance site defines hard hat colours they should align with the BuildUK standard:

  • Black:  Site Supervisors
  • Orange: Slinger/signaller
  • White: General Use (Including sites where colour coding impractical), Manager, Client, Competent Operative
  • Blue: Inexperienced Person / Visitor

Note: Network Rails PPE standard allows only white and blue helmets.
