Thats funny about the stickers on hard hats because alot of jobs/companies these days issue you a sticker with your employee number for that job, and if you don't have that sticker, there not suppose to let you on site.

Also, remember your hard hats are only good for 5 years, so you gotta throw away your hard hat with all your badass stickers on it after that time. lol.

I use an Optrel E680 helmet and they make a bib that fit to the bottom edge of the helmet with what looks like an older style windshield rubber

I used to suffer from chest burn on a regular basis , but this has eliminated it all together...

The one job I worked at I had to make a safety guide of some sort and weld it on the rig derrick about 20 feet up so we fired up the Ranger and put a pallet on the forklift and I was standing on the pallet, 20 feet up, no safety harness welding on an oil service rig which was covered in oil and grease by myself. The guy who lifted me up with the forklift left after he got me to the height i needed. It was a very safe work environment. :shock:

Our job offers us welders the chin flap to protect our chest from that burn since alot of work is done kneeling and bent over exposing the chest alot. Works great. Ours are held on with velcro as well. Have also seen some people that are outside contractors cut up an old welding sleeve and use part of that with a little tape on the inside for the same purpose. Just watch it while welding overhead alot.

As far as hardhats and stickers/writing.... We are mandated to have the company issued Name/Clock Number sticker and are allowed to have one 3x5" american flag sticker as well as one sticker supporting our local Boilermakers Union. Used to be able to load them with stickers but the Navy now claims that upon inspection the stickers are potentially covering up cracks and other things that would render the hardhat useless or junk without ever knowing it because it cant be seen under the stickers. Makes sense and people who already decorated theirs were "grandfathered" in until they were issued a new hardhat. Same thing about the writing, said some chemicals can degrade the plastics. We are allowed to write our locker combinations on the inside of the hardhats but only with certain paint markers that are approved to do so.

I bought the Tillman 567's (velcro version) earlier.
I don't know if mine had been on the shelf too long or what, but when I removed the paper backing to stick the strip on, all the glue came with it. Bout to fix that right meow.
Mines going on the top, I haven't had much trouble up front.
But when I get the spare mulah, gonna get this. ... /k5931.htm
Local welding supply price was $20.
