Should PPE Vests be worn open or closed or does it matter? What about extreme outdoor heat?

Workers who really appreciate having the proper personal protective equipment are those who were wearing it when it was needed.

Same here Bro! August of 2011, I was on a Boom Lift 40ft in the air, and a malfunction happen where the lift jolt upward a few feet really fast when the operator was trying to lower it. I ended up smacking head, with direct full force.

I was out of work for 3 weeks recovering from a concussion, had to be rush to the hospital, got a cat scan the following day, and had a eeg done on my brain.

That hard hat has been put into retirement, and is now a personal reminder to always wear my hard hat

In Iraq I was wearing my Kevlar (Combat Helmet) while in the gunners seat of my HMMWV, I kinda sat down into the cab of the vehicle we hit a bump and it knocked the armored turret hatch (a couple hundred pounds of solid steel) down onto my head. Which in turn dropped me onto the floor of the vehicle. Had I not been wearing my helmet, I probably wouldnt be hear typing this.
