Things are always a bit slow in getting to the South-west, but following the HSE guidance and your article (8 August, page 13) I was unable to purchase "a wide brimmed" hard hat from our local suppliers.
We have tried panama hats but find them a little flimsy and difficult to keep clean. Sombreros are a trifle too wide for scaffolding. Any suggestions would be welcome.
