Hard hats are not an OSHA mandate. It is also not in our safety manual that hard hats be worn other than when the customer or contract calls it out. They are required at all times to wear hearing protection, gloves, safety glasses, steel toed boots, and vests. No concessions there. No heavy equipment being used, we are mowing with walk behinds and ZTR's and weed eating. I spent a lot of years in the construction industry working closely with safety professionals, safety truly does come first for me. I would never let something go just because the guys were more comfortable with it.
