ODU Ball Cap Safety

Sat, 12 Mar 16   Posted by: Timothy Czeisel

Here is an easy add on for your ODU Ball Cap. These hard shell inserts are available at many stores for around $4.00

This protects agains minor bumps especially when crawling in tight spaces on large boats. This is not part of the Coast Guard uniform but is worn underneath and will not be seen outside the uniform. This is just added PPE but not intended to replace situations where a hard hat should be worn.

Long Island's local cable company actually supplies these to protect their technicians as an addition safety option. The idea stems from a conversation between our FSO-CS and FSO-CM.
