Head Safety Helmet:
The use of Head Safety Helmet, like reducing or controlling the risks of injury at source should be considered first. Hazards of job processes or working environments may be the root sources of head injury. Appropriate preventive measures should be taken in order to prevent head injury.Some practical examples are: provision of toe-boards to prevent objects falling from the working platform, erection of catching fans and nets to reduce the likelihood of people being struck by any falling objects
safety helmet is not a substitute for other preventive measures of head injury accidents. Safety helmets do not prevent head injury accidents, but only reduce the severity.
