    Smile "Hard hats must be worn at all times"

    I'm a Engilish-Japanese translator.
    Please tell me the meaning of the following phrase: "Hard hats must be worn at all times".

    Hard hat <See picture here>
    must <necessity>
    worn <past participle of wear>
    must be worn <passive; active: you must wear (your hard hat)>
    at all times <all the time [while in the hard hat area], every minute>

    It comes from the 安全第一 information campaign for construction sites, meaning "You always must wear a very hard plastic yellow hat for safety."
