Though the high scalers took great care to protect themselves, deaths were not uncommon and the most common cause was falling rock. With necessity being the mother of invention the men began to protect themselves with hard-boiled hats. By simply coating their cloth hats in tar the men could protect themselves from all but the deadliest falling rock. The hats worked so well that Six Companies ordered the first commercially made hard hats for the high scalers, and they were soon standard equipment on the dam site.
