FAQs: You Ask, We Answer

The materials and the adhesive we utilize in Worker ID products are non-conductive. As such, they do not present any increased risk to the wearer.

We use 3M manufactured adhesive film in the production of our hard hat ID’s. This adhesive is the exact type used by the 3M company to make their reflective tapes that are designed and recommended for use on firefighters helmets and other protective occupational safety helmets. The adhesive does not in any way degrade the performance of safety helmets.

Our hard hat ID’s have been laboratory tested by UK helmet manufacturer, Centurion. The tests were to assess any changes resulting from the application of our product on the shock absorption and penetration resistance (+50C:-40C). Our Hard Hat ID’s and have been passed as safe to use on all helmet substrates (ABS, PE, PP, and HDPE).

We've designed Worker ID to be resistant to the ingress of water. In the event that water does enter, the synthetic paper ID tag inside is 100% waterproof and fully retains all information stored. It can even be fully immersed for extended periods, and the tag will perform and retain its data.

All Worker ID products are designed to be fully tamperproof. Once the written ID card is inserted into the ID sleeve and the security seal applied, any tampering will be immediately evident.
Each worker chooses what information they want to record. This gives the worker the choice to record information that would be essential if they were involved in an accident, but may not want to share directly with their employer. Suggested data fields are (but are not limited to):

  • Name

  • Telephone number

  • Employer/employers contact number

  • Two emergency contacts

  • Medical condition

  • Medications and allergies

  • Medical plan and insurance details

Worker ID products are not only for people with medical conditions. Even if you have no medical conditions or history, Worker ID allows you to store vital emergency contact details. This ensures that if you are in an accident at work, your loved ones can be notified of your situation immediately.
Your coworkers know less about you than you may think. Sure, they’ll know your name and maybe what you did last weekend. However, are you 100% confident they all know how to quickly contact your family if you are in an accident? Would they know about any of your medical history, such as if you have an adverse reaction to bee stings or if you’re allergic to penicillin?
As a non-electronic solution, HIPPA requirements for medical data storage are not applicable to our product.
We recommend placing Worker ID on the outside of the hard hat, so it is quickly recognized and easily located by first responders and paramedics. However, there is nothing preventing Worker ID from being fitted to the inside of a hard hat if that location is preferred.
Although you can use pencils and ballpoint pens, for best retention of the written information we strongly recommend using a fine-tipped permanent marker pen, such as a Sharpie.
Vital ID undertakes to supply only safety equipment that fully comply with the standards and regulations and claims made relating to those products. Where appropriate, Vital ID will maintain up to date technical files and associated documentation to ensure that regulatory compliance information can be supplied upon request.
