Keywords: Head Protection

Head protection is required in almost every industry where there is a risk of being injured by falling objects or when working in areas of restricted head space. During 2006/7 HSE figures show that 9158 head injuries (34 of them fatal) were reported.
This highlights the need to offer safety helmets and other forms of protection to the head.

JSP safety helmets have been designed to exceed the requirements of EN397, the industrial helmet standard. Not only will they offer protection at the defined test sites, but over a much larger area of the head, giving unrivalled levels of performance plus 'all round protection'
