Abstract
The findings of a project designed to demonstrate that a head protective device could be developed for the American worker which would provide greater head protection than is presently available are presented. A prototype maximum duty industrial helmet was fabricated. Performance evaluation began with laboratory testing and was later expanded to include actual field testing by volunteers in high head injury risk industrial environments. Comments received subsequent to field trial evaluation carried out in firemen, construction workers and electrical workers, warrant the conclusion that most of the participants questioned were pleased with the comfort and fit of the prototype helmet. An on the job accident demonstrated that the helmet actually does protect from a serious impact. Based upon the results obtained during test, standards for a class of heavy duty industrial helmets were developed. These are presented as appendix B of the report. The report describes helmet test equipment and how it is used to evaluate the prototype helmet in relation to the developed recommended standard. (Contract No. 210-75-0031)
