Hard Hats & Head Protection
Protective headwear is absolutely vital for employees undertaking a whole range of jobs in potentially dangerous environments, or people visiting those sites.
As an employer you will need to up hold the law. You need to make sure that the protection you offer your workforce complies with strict European standards. EN397 covers industrial safety helmets while EN812 applies to industrial bump caps.
Safety helmets come in a range of bright colours for good visibility. Look for adjustable straps that allow the helmets to fit a wide range of head sizes.
Some helmets come with retractable visors which also offer eye and face protection. You can also look out for models which are compatible with clip on ear protectors.
Endurance is a well known provider of a wide range of helmets. Their plus model has a nylon webbing harness, foam sweatband and an extended peak. The ABS shell protects against penetration and is also flame resistant.
If you are looking for hard hats a good buy is the Venitex Zircon, which is made from high density polyethylene. There's a sweat band and a low density polyethylene harness which has eight fixing points to ensure a good fit.
The Venitex baseball safety helmet can improve vertical vision. There is a textile harness with eight fixing points, a foam sweat band and innovative button adjustment for a wide range of head sizes. It also has electrical insulation.
The Dickies bump cap helps to protect against scrapes and bumps. A velcro adjuster keeps it in place and the ABS shell and padded crown absorb shock. This hat is ideal for when helmets are not needed.
The Vent Cool Bump Cap, made by Portwest, is the latest innovation in protective headwear. The design incorporates a shell made of lightweight ABS into a baseball style of cap.
