Bibliographic information June 1988, Vol.10, No.1, p.29-37. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract Ten types of injection moulded industrial safety helmets, three types of injection moulded climbing helmets, and seven types of glass fibre reinforced polyester climbing helmets have been subjected to various impact energies and the transmitted forces compared. The variation in British and foreign standards requirements of different types of helmet are discussed. Harmonisation of standards for helmets is suggested.
