Helmet safety

How to choose a safety helmet

Mips has teamed up with some of the leading safety helmet and PPE manufacturers to include our patented low-friction layer safety systems in construction helmets and hard hats.

  • Rotational management

    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. 

  • Comfort and fit

    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.

  • Safety certifications

    Most construction 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.

  • Brand and style

    There are plenty of great choices of construction 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.

Safety is job one

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.
