Hard Hats to Helmets
Traumatic Brain Injuries are responsible for 25% of all construction fatalities, and many life-altering injuries.
It’s time to make the transition.
H2H is pleased to present helmet testing videos produced by Milwaukee Tool. These videos provide an overview of the pertinent ANSI Z89.1 and EN 12492 helmet testing requirements. Thanks to Milwaukee for their educational videos and support of H2H!
Helmets offer superior protection for construction workers. These safety helmets are inspired by the best features of hard hats for construction and head protection for sports such as rock climbing and cycling.
Regulatory Requirements and
Construction Industry Adoption
“We listened and thought for a long time; too long. Then at Annual Conference the seminar on Hard hats to Helmets put us over the top. The thought that a fellow member’s teammate might have lived with a helmet. That was enough to convince me to make the change.”
“Upon hearing your helmet presentation at our board meeting, one of our board members decided he was going to explore providing the helmets for all his workers. As he was contemplating his purchase, a ready-mixed driver on one of his pumping jobs slipped and fell back severely injuring his head. He took that as a sign and ordered the helmets that week. The accident probably wouldn’t have resonated with him had he not heard your presentation.”
“A construction worker I know was standing on the ground in the path of some falling 2x4s. The first one hit his hard hat which protected his head, but it also knocked the hat off, leaving his bare head exposed as the rest of the wood fell on him. He needed to have several stitches and take time off of work.”
