We updated this classic NSC poster as a reminder of its timeless message—a safety helmet isn't an accessory, its a necessity. A recent student drove the point home with this story. He'd never thought much of his helmet, until one day:
"I was up a work site, leaning out for a better view when a bolt fell from five stories up. The impact on my head was unbelievable. It hurt all the way down to my neck. I was really glad I had a helmet on."
You can download the poster as a reminder that, when it comes to your head, better SAFE than sorry.
