Hard hats arrived in the early 20th century when working conditions for labourers were becoming more and more dire. Over the ages, many materials have been used for hard hats, in 1930’s aluminium hard hats became a standard but as time passed better materials were tried and tested, so nowadays most hard hats/safety helmets are made from thermoplastics. In 1997 ANSI approved the development of a ventilated hard-hat to keep the wearers cooler. Accessories that usually come with these are shades, visors and a head mount flashlight. Considering  they are predominantly used in the engineering world we have decided to make a list of 10 best hard hats for you to choose. So check out this list of 10 best hard hats and let us know your favourite one in the comments section.
