The History of the Hard Hat

After World War I, Edward W. Bullard created the “hard boiled hat,” made of steamed canvas, shellac and black paint. These hats were optional for miners and other laborers until the construction of Hoover Dam in 1931 and the Golden Gate Bridge in 1933, the first two projects where hard hats were required.
