Orange Safety Helmets
Orange Hard Hats - Helmets For Signallers & Slingers
The vibrant orange safety helmet construction site workers wear in a slinger/signaller role makes them easily identifiable. This ease of identification is essential, considering their role involves directing crane and lifting equipment operators on how to manoeuvre their load.
With relatively recent changes to rules for UK construction sites, the orange hard hat meaning has been firmly defined by Build UK. If you are a slinger or signaller and a designated fire marshall, you can add red stickers to your helmet to indicate this, and First-Aiders can also wear green stickers to show their additional role.
You can wear orange hard hats in various positions outside the construction industry. They are prevalent in the forestry industry, where the vibrant orange helps workers stand out amongst the sea of green foliage.

Yellow safety helmets are not to be worn on construction sites, but they can still certainly be used at docks, factories and other places with hard hat requirements.
This helmet colour is often worn as branding by contractors within factories and non-construction environments with no specific role-related meaning.
A green hat is often the best choice if you are a first aider and a non-construction worker. An alternative is to wear green stickers to indicate your first aid status.
Red hard hats are ideal for factory roles where the individual is a fire marshall. As they do not fit with the colour coding system for construction sites, a red sticker set is available for fire marshals working in a construction environment.
