PPE helmet industries

Construction and industry

In the construction and industrial sectors, the PPE helmet required for employees working at height or in areas where there is a risk of falling. 

This can be the case, for example, in construction projects where workers work on scaffolding or roofs. But also in factories where there is a risk of crashing material. 

These helmets are specially designed to provide safety against falling material.


In the offshore industry, PPE helmets are also of great importance. Employees in this industry often work in hazardous environments, such as on a oil platform or near machines.

These helmets offer protection from potential injuries that may arise from explosions, fire or fall hazards.

Municipality and governments

Municipalities and governments often use PPE helmets during disaster relief or other emergencies. 

These helmets are specially designed to withstand impact from falling material and other potential hazards that may arise during a disaster.


In the installation industry, the PPE helmet is used by employees who work with high voltage, for example. Such as electricians working on transformers. But also employees working with gas pipes. 

These helmets offer protection from potential electric shock or explosions.


In the landscaping sector, PPE helmets are used when there is a risk of falling or falling material.

Transport and logistics

In the transport and logistics industry, PPE helmets are required for employees working in hazardous environments. Such as in the port, but also while loading and unloading trucks.

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, for example, the American ANSI Z89.1 and the European EN 397.
