Your PPE may have lost its expected protection performance without you being aware

Some common practices that may seem harmless could have an impact - like wearing a cap under your hard hat, writing with a felt-tip pen on your hard hat, or attaching ear defenders to your hard hat without checking they have been certified together.

View the MSA white paper to learn more about the best safety practices, see practical examples of where PPE may lose its certified protection performance, and read how you can avoid those situations.
