Type I vs. Type IIWhen it comes to selecting a cap, performance should be the number one consideration. OSHA and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) require compliance with ANSI Z89.1-2009 and CSA Z94.1 standards, respectively, and each specifies two levels of protection. ANSI Type I/CSA Type 1 caps are intended to protect the wearer against impact to and penetration of the crown, or top, only. These caps are the most commonly worn type in the United States. By contrast, ANSI Type II/CSA Type 2 hard hats protect against both lateral and crown impact and are more commonly worn in Canada as required by safety standards there.
