On a site I was working, the safety officer stated that the welding helmet was manufactured to comply with the relevent Australian Standard and that any user modification such as the addition of flaps meant that the helmet no longer complied with the standard and had to be restored to as manufactured or removed from site. Some guys had flaps taped to their helmet and could peel it off and continue. Those that had drilled holes for screw or rivets had to buy new helmets!
Guys who had their names on their helmets had to remove the paint/ink which was considered a modification.
