10. PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT Foot protection Suitable footwear protects the feet well against bruises by falling objects, sparks, splashes, and splatter, etc. It is mandatory to use safety shoes in the production facilities. Head protection Safety helmets (hard hats) protect the worker against impacts and bruises on the head. It is especially important to use a helmet when working in con- fined spaces. It also gives some protection against impact of falling objects. Adjust the helmet in such a way that it stays firmly in your head. Leave some empty space between the helmet and the top of your head. A chinstrap prevents the helmet from falling off. Never paint the helmet nor clean it with solvents. That will reduce the service life of the helmet. The helmets get brittle over time when used or stored, so their service life is always limited. When working inside their service life is no longer than five years, in outside use only three years. If the helmet has a UV sensor, it changes the color to give signal to the user, when the helmet must be replaced. Replace the helmet if it has been under strong impact, if it is damaged or exposed to chemicals. It is mandatory to use a safety helmet. 41
