Safety helmets are a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) designed to protect the head from impact, penetration, and other potential hazards in the workplace. They are required in environments where there is a risk of falling objects, electrical hazards, or other head injuries.
In addition to protecting the head from physical hazards, safety helmets may also include other features such as insulation to protect against electrical shock or ventilation to help keep the wearer cool and comfortable. Safety helmets may feature vent ports to allow airflow circulation around the head area. Other features may include PE suspension harness for comfort fit and compatibility with ear muffs to provide options for ear protection.
Safety helmets have a hard outer shell typically made of plastic such as High-density polyethylene (HPDE), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polycarbonate (PC), or other durable materials, with an inner suspension system that helps absorb and distribute impact.
Safety helmets must comply with EN 397 which is a European standard that sets the requirements and testing methods for industrial safety helmets. The standard specifies the physical and performance requirements for helmets from falling objects and other potential hazards in industrial environments. The standard specifies the physical and performance requirements for helmets designed to protect the wearer's head from falling objects and other potential hazards in industrial environments.
Bump caps can help protect users from light contact with stationary objects in flammable risk areas. Unlike safety helmets, bump caps are not intended to protect against falling objects or other serious head injuries. Bump caps provide an alternative option for head protection for environments where it is not necessary to wear safety helmets which may be bulkier and heavier.
Bump caps are flame retardant and may feature over-locked outer fabric to safeguard against internal ignition. They can provide head protection to EN812:A1 in environments where hot sparks or flames are present.
