Safety has always been a matter of concern during industrial activities, primarily in construction sites. More protected the workers are, lower the chances of injuries and accidents at construction sites. Head is the organ of human body that is wholly encased inside a bone. This states the importance of protecting the most vital part of the human body, the brain. Safety helmets or hard hats act as the first line of defense against such type of head injuries. Safety helmets are one of the most useful personal protective equipment to wear, protecting the brain & head from impact trauma. A well manufactured safety helmet is necessary while present at such work sites. In various industrial operational environments such as mining, construction, forestry and power, there are high chances of accidents that may result in head injuries. Personnel in work sites are exposed to numerous risks such as collision with heavy bodies, fall from high buildings, falling of heavy objects to the body and so on. Owing to the nature of such works, it is impossible to eliminate these type of risks with collective protective equipment. Hence, the only possible way to ensure the manpower safety is the utilization of safety helmets. To effectively reduce the risk of an injury, appropriate type of safety helmet should be used. Safety helmets selected must satisfy various performance requirements such as resistance to penetration, offers maximum comfort to user and shock absorption. Safety helmet protects the user’s head against impact from objects falling from above, lateral forces, hitting fixed risky objects at workstation, open flame, electric shock, splash of molten metals, high temperature, etc. Safety helmets are available in market in various colours that signify different uses at the construction site. The designation signified by colours vary from company to company.
