The OMEGA ll, Type 2, Class E is certified to standard CSA Z94.1-05. Claudio Dente, President of Den-tec states, “When 65 percent of head injuries come from a lateral blow, the Type 2 makes a lot of sense. Many of the young workers prefer to wear their hard hat ‘backwards’. The OMEGA is certified for that position as well.” The OMEGA ll is molded from high-density polyethylene for maximum protection and lightweight comfort – 435 grams (15.3 oz). The low profile design provides stability and there are accessory slots for a wide variety of eye, face and hearing products. In addition, the cushioned brow pad is removable, washable and replaceable. This comes in a Type 1 and full brim version as well.
