Geelong and Collingwood coaching staff could be forced to wear hard hats on Friday if Simonds Stadium is classified as a construction site.

The Cats’ home ground is undergoing significant renovations, meaning the coaches boxes and media facilities are stationed in portable offices.

The AFL inspected the facilities last week, but have yet to inform the club whether, under health and safety regulations, the walk during the break in play from the on-ground huddle up through the stands would require coaching staff to wear hard hats and even high-visibility vests.

The Cats’ coaching staff had to don the health-and-safety gear during match simulation last week.
