Abstract
Results are presented of a research project to develop criteria for a performance standard, a testing standard, and a users' standard for industrial and firefighters' head protective devices. Adequate industrial and firefighter head protection necessitates the use of four distinct levels of protection, the use of protective devices depending on the occupational hazard. A human head injury index, the Head Injury Criterion, is applied as an impact performance evaluation technique, and the test methods, equipment and procedures necessary for accurate measurement are developed. Recommendation is made for further research in developing protective equipment and evaluation techniques.
