The Hardhat Riot Book Description :

"I am seeking to rescue the poor stockinger, the Luddite cropper, the "obsolete" hand-loom weaver, the "utopian" artisan, and even the deluded . . . from the enormous condescension of posterity. Their crafts and traditions may have been dying. Their hostility to the new industrialism may have been backward-looking. Their communitarian ideals may have been fantasies. Their insurrectionary conspiracies may have been foolhardy. But they lived through these times of acute social disturbance, and we did not. Their aspirations were valid in terms of their own experience. - E. P. Thompson, The Making of the English Working Class They arrived in waves, in colored hard hats and worn steel-toed boots, shouldering American flags, thundering, "U-S-A. All the way," intent on confronting antiwar demonstrators on Wall Street. Police rushed to form a human chain and separate the two factions. Hippies chanted, "Peace now!" Hardhats shot back, "Love it or leave it!" The student protestors pushed forward and shouted their opposition to the "fucking war." They expected it to be a matter of words. They had been told "the police are here to protect us." Then, in the same place where George Washington was inaugurated, the construction workers charged and the police did not protect them. The hardhats plowed through thousands, swinging their fists wildly, fighting to raise American flags. Students tripped and screamed and flailed for escape. For hours, they ran for their lives "like a cattle stampede." Young people were pulled from melees by their hair. Others were found unconscious and prone in the dirty streets. By the time the police realized the scope of the riot, the mob was too large and the cops were too few. City Hall was now under siege. Two liberalisms collided that day, presaging the long Democratic civil war ahead, and revealing a rupture expanding across the American landscape, a divide that had grown so vast it seemed unbridgeable by the time elites noticed, unless one looked

Last of the Hard Hat Divers Book Description :

BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: GENERAL. Recently retired following a long and distinguished career as a seaman and 'hard hat' diver working on complex underwater engineering projects, Bob Sinclair now sets down both his story as one of the last hard hat divers, and his history, which takes us back to the 1930s and his childhood in Scotland. He recounts his enduring love and fascination with water, no doubt inherited from his seafaring father, the depredations and joys of growing up in wartime Scotland, and his own father's often life-endangering adventures at sea. His own career was no less eventful and no less dangerous. Often below for astonishing periods of time (eighteen hours in one instance) and working against the clock of civil engineering contracts, Bob and his colleagues show an unstinting and unwavering sense of duty and commitment to their work, and even more importantly, to one another. A hart hat diver's life is literally always in the hands of someone else.

The Lady Wore a Hard Hat Book Description :

At forty-five, Ellen Ford was unemployed and looking for a career change when an architectural drawing course started her down a path she'd never considered. Based on her success in the course and interest in the subject area, a college advisor recommended she enter the school's construction management program. The idea was intimidating. To succeed, Ellen would have to overcome deep-seated test anxiety while studying a discipline where women were, at best, a minority. But Ellen would thrive in the world of construction management-even though in the months after graduating, jobs always seemed one interview away despite her honors performance in college. The mid-1980s were difficult for women in construction. Ellen persisted, however, eventually landing a position as a project manager for one of the nation's leading construction management teams. This lady wore a hard hat-and she wore it well. An inspirational and instructional treatise on one woman's personal transformation offering professional recommendations for those in the field, The Lady Wore a Hard Hat: Building Medical Facilities is a fascinating window into the world of construction management that details the many challenges, issues, and rewards associated with overseeing the construction of major medical facilities.

Efficacy of Hard Hats in Attenuating Head Accelerations Book Description :

Struck-by accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the construction industry. While hard hats are the conventional means of industrial head protection, the current test standard to evaluate hard hat performance does not assess their ability to mitigate head accelerations from such impacts. To address this gap in knowledge, three investigations were pursued as part of this thesis. First, a variety of commercially available hard-hat designs - differentiated by shell design, number of suspension points, and suspension tightening system - were tested for their ability to attenuate accelerations during vertical impacts to the head. All hard-hats appreciably reduced head acceleration to the unprotected condition. However, neither the addition of extra suspension points nor variations in suspension tightening mechanism appreciably influenced performance. Second, the same hard hat designs were tested for their ability to attenuate head accelerations when subjected to impacts in two different head orientations - upright and forward-flexed by 30°. Impacts to the forward-flexed head resulted in the largest measured angular accelerations, and hard-hats were least effective at mitigating angular accelerations in this head position. Additionally, no correlations were observed between hard hat performance in an upright head orientation versus forward-flexed orientation. Results from this study provide insight into why impacts to a forward-flexed head are prevalent in epidemiological data, and also suggest that current hard-hat designs may not be optimized for impacts to a forward-flexed head. Lastly, a validated finite element model of a hard-hat was developed that accounted for more geometric detail than other models previously seen in literature. This validation process highlighted the importance of specific design features present in a hard-hat (such as headband attachments) and their influence in construction worker's safety against head injuries.
