Coloured Hard Hats Go Live

Coloured Hard Hats Go Live

  • Date: Wednesday 23rd November 2016

In a bid to make sites safer Build UK contractors are introducing a colour coding system for hard hats on member sites.


The aim is to make workers instantly recognisable by their safety qualifications.

  • White - Site Manager, competent operative, vehicle marshal
  • Black - Supervisor
  • Orange - Slinger, signaller
  • Blue - All those who do not fall into the above categories


Trained First Aiders and Fire Marshalls will also have stickers on their helmets. It is hoped that the initiative will help contractors to assess and define the competence of their  construction workers.
