FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FAQs: YOU ASK, WE ANSWER
IS THE ADHESIVE YOU USE SAFE TO APPLY TO MY HARD HAT?
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).
HOW WATERPROOF IS WORKER ID?
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.
I WORK AROUND ELECTRICITY. IS YOUR PRODUCT ELECTRICALLY NON-CONDUCTIVE?
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.
IS MY STORED INFORMATION SECURE?
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.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO I HAVE TO RECORD ON WORKER ID?
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):
- Telephone number
- Employer/employers contact number
- Two emergency contacts
- Medical condition
- Medications and allergies
- Medical plan and insurance details
I HAVE NO MEDICAL ISSUES; THIS PRODUCT ISN'T FOR ME.
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.
MY COWORKERS KNOW ME. WHY DO I NEED WORKER ID?
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?
IS WORKER ID HIPPA COMPLIANT?
As a non-electronic solution, HIPPA requirements for medical data storage are not applicable to our product.
CAN I PLACE WORKER ID INSIDE A HELMET?
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.
DO I NEED A SPECIAL PEN TO WRITE ON WORKER ID PRODUCTS?
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.
