We supply the Petzl branded helmets - Vented and non-vented. Contact HFR Solutions for further informationWorking at heights, and other high-risk activities in industry such as Confined Spaces demand specialist PPE. Issuing and wearing the correct type of helmet is critical to the safety of individuals in these environments.

Work at height safety helmets have to meet a more stringent criteria (EN 397 & EN 12492) to that of a general construction style safety hard-hat (EN397). The main differences are that a construction style safety hard-hat is designed to take an impact from a falling object directly onto the top of the helmet (EN397), where a specific work at height helmet has to achieve impact protection to the top, front, sides, and rear of the helmet (EN 12492) enabling a greater level of protection to the wearer.

Other key elements on a work at height helmet include a greater field of vision (no, or reduced peak), and a stronger chin strap. 

Head and personal protection is a necessity for most industries and plays an important role in keeping your employees safe. Accordingly to recent fatal injury reports 3&4 issued by the HSE, working at height activities still results in one of the highest rates of fatal incidents in the workplace.
