Proper head protection is vital in any construction site environment, and everyday workers and one-off visitors both need the same level of protection to stay safe during their time on site. Relative to other parts of the body, an injury to the head can cause significant long-term damage, so it’s essential to invest in everyone’s safety.
Our Standard Safety Helmet is manufactured to meet the BS EN 397 protective standard required for hard hats on UK construction sites, and comes in a range of colours for a more personal touch. Wearing a hard hat all day isn’t the most comfortable experience, however, so you could consider equipping your workforce with the Deluxe Safety Helmet which has more comfort features. The HPV/TE Vented Safety Helmet will also be appreciated by employees, as it comes with venting for a further increase in comfort, without compromising the helmet’s integrity or protective properties.
If you have workers in different teams or contractors separate from the main workforce, customising your site’s hard hats with a custom safety helmet label can be a good way to distinguish different teams and quickly see who is doing what in the event of an emergency.
For sites where there is less risk of a significant head injury, a Hi-Vis Bump Cap can be used to protect workers from minor risks, such as banging one’s head on the ceiling or a low hanging object. As with our safety helmets, we also offer a Deluxe Bump Cap, which is designed for maximum adjustability and wearer comfort.
It should be stressed that where there is a risk of major head injuries, a bump cap will not provide sufficient protection and a hard hat must be worn.
