||Article presented at a symposium on head protection at work (16 Apr. 1986, Loughborough, United Kingdom). Techniques which may be used to establish differences in jobs to enable reasonable designs for head protection were discussed. Factors distinguishing head hazards, environment and task-related needs for different jobs are listed as well as features of the helmets for protection specifications. Helmet design features, impact levels, and helmet displacements on impact are outlined for specific job groups.
