Can a hard hat be worn backwards?

ANSI Z89.1 was revised in 2009 to address concerns regarding wearing hard hats in reverse or “reverse donning”. According to this revision, as long as the hard hat can pass the manufacturers testing requirements, it can be worn backwards or forwards. Look for the reverse donning arrow on the inside of the helmet to verify this capability.
