Black Hard Hats
Black Hard Hats - Supervisor Hard Hats
When working on a construction site in the uk, you must adhere to strict helmet colour coding. Part of this is that black safety helmets are reserved for specific roles. Having a colour-coded helmet system on-site makes it easy to identify different types of workers quickly and easily; after all, everyone should be wearing a hard hat.
Under the latest Build UK guidance, a black hard hat indicates that the person wearing it is a supervisor. This category has our complete range of black hard hats for sale. If you are looking for a different colour, then do not despair. We have a range of other colour safety helmets available.
Other Colours Of Helmets & Their Meanings
We stock a full range of helmet colours; below are links to the most popular colours.
Slingers or signallers wear these on-site; these are the people crane operators will look to for direction whilst lifting loads.
A white hard hat can be used by many competent operatives, from qualified construction workers to vehicle marshalls and site managers.
If you are a site visitor, you will almost certainly be wearing a blue safety helmet.
These are not permitted on construction sites but may be allowed in factories, rescue applications or other roles. If you are a first aid qualified and a supervisor, you can wear green stickers on your helmet to indicate your additional role.
Once again, these are not permitted by Build UK guidance on construction sites; you should wear red stickers on your helmet to indicate if you are a fire marshal.
These are no longer allowed on construction sites as a piece of personal protective equipment. In other industries, however, they are still very popular.
