This episode’s theme is safety helmets. When it comes to working on the job site, protecting your head is pretty important. But, a lot more goes into finding the perfect helmet than most people think.
About This Episode
In episode 20 of Gear Up with Gear Experts, we welcome Gear Expert® Michelle Galloway back as our guest in the studio. Michelle first joined us on episode 11 and is the National Sales Director for GME Supply.
We talk with Michelle about:
- The broad rules that cover head protection;
- The different types and classifications of hard hats;
- Safety helmet standards;
- The difference between a hard hat, safety helmet, and climbing helmet; and
- Safety helmet service life.
This episode is jam-packed with useful content and we decided to skip our weekly insight. But, you can check out a bunch of our hard hat content with this playlist on YouTube and this Free Downloadable Poster available on the GME Supply and Columbia Safety Knowledge Base.
We’d also like to take this time to remind everyone that while this show is meant to be fun, entertaining, and informative it is not intended to replace proper, in-depth training. Manufacturer’s instructions must also be followed and reviewed before any fall protection equipment is used. And proper training should be received before operating any equipment or before climbing.
Why do YOU Climb?
We’d like to hear from you about why YOU climb. Email us a voice message at firstname.lastname@example.org about why you climb and what climbing means to you for a chance to be featured on the show – and win some swag of course.
