Mips has teamed up with some of the leading safety helmet and PPE manufacturers to include our patented low-friction layer safety systems in safety helmets and hard hats.
The goal is to improve head protection by reducing harmful rotational motion caused by an angled impact from a worker falling or being struck by a falling object. In certain angled impacts, Mips® safety systems can reduce harmful forces that may otherwise be transmitted to the head. Our low-friction layer inside the helmet allows multi-directional movement of 10-15mm on certain angled impacts, intended to help reduce rotational force to the head.
There are many factors when choosing a safety helmet. Here are a few to consider:
Make sure the helmet is designed with a low-friction layer like a Mips® safety system that’s intended to help reduce rotational force to the head during certain angled impacts.
You’ll likely be wearing the helmet for long periods of time, so making sure it’s comfortable will ensure that you enjoy wearing it and will keep it on throughout your work activities.
Most safety helmets available to consumers are required to meet certain safety requirements, but it’s best to double-check that it’s up to date with the latest regulations in your particular line of work.
There are plenty of great choices of safety helmets available today. Be sure to choose one from a brand you know and trust, with a fit and style that you’ll enjoy wearing.
