Industrial Protective Headwear
This first edition of CSA Standard Z94.1—1966, Industrial Protective Headwear, forms part of a series of CSA Standards on head and eye protection which covers protective headwear, hearing protectors, and impact resistant lenses and radiation protection. It supersedes the Tentative Standard published in 1965 and replaces the protective headwear requirements given in CSA Standard Z94—1948, Code for Head and Eye Protection.
Z94.1—1966 applies to safety hats and caps intended to provide protection for the heads of industrial workers from impact and electrical shock, excluding so-called Bump Hats. It includes requirements for materials, workmanship, dielectric strength, impact strength, and marking.
This Standard was prepared by the Committee on Protective Hats and Caps under the jurisdiction of the Sectional Committee on Safety Codes and was formally approved by these Committees and the CSA Technical Council.
