These helmets are specially designed to provide safety against falling material.
In the offshore industry, PPE helmets are also of great importance. Workers in this industry often work in hazardous environments, such as on an oil platform or near machinery. These helmets provide protection against potential injuries that could arise from explosions, fire or fall hazards.
Municipality and governments

Five important aspects when choosing a PPE helmet
If you are looking for a safety helmet, it is important to pay attention to a few things to make sure it meets the right requirements.
Make sure the helmet is certified to the appropriate standards. This can vary depending on the country or industry you work in, but popular standards include US ANSI Z89.1 and European EN 397.
A safety helmet should be comfortable and fit well. Try out different sizes and models to make sure the helmet fits the head properly and is not too loose or too tight.
Make sure the helmet offers the right protection for the specific activity you will be using it for.
A safety helmet should be sturdy and durable. Make sure the helmet is not too easily damaged and that there are no visible defects.
Selecting the right helmet
When choosing a PPE helmet, it is important to consider the specific requirements of the workplace and the potential risks present. There are different types of PPE helmets, each with their own unique features and level of protection. It is therefore important to consult with an expert in safety and protective equipment to choose the right helmet for the specific situation.
