Helmets required

Don’t be a hard head — wear a helmet.

Postal Service employees who use a bicycle or tricycle in the performance of outdoor duties must wear a helmet. Helmets should fit snugly without any movement from side to side, have a chin strap and comply with Consumer Product Safety Commission regulations.

Wearing a bike helmet helps prevent head injuries in accidents. For more information refer to Management Instruction EL-823-2012-1, Bicycle Helmets.

And that’s smart safety!
