The standard defines the basics for industrial helmets uniformly for all of Europe and provides information about the construction, materials used and the wearing properties of the work helmets.

The standard also specifies the quality requirements for the protective function of the protective helmets and defines requirements for the recurring inspection of the protective helmets.

Bump cap with bump protection according to DIN EN 812

If an industrial safety helmet does not have to be worn, but there is a potential risk of bumping into the head, a bump cap is used.

A bump cap is a head protection that protects against injuries that are caused by impact with the head against fixed, sharp-edged and hard objects. A bump cap usually consists of a normal cap with an impact-resistant plastic insert, which can also be removed.

The physical quality requirements for bump caps are defined and stipulated by the DIN EN 812 guideline. However, bump caps do not provide protection against swinging objects and must not be used as a substitute for protective helmets under any circumstances. Since they are lighter, they are more comfortable to wear than work helmets.

Different helmet colors: Which helmet is the right one?

Find at Agrarzone a large selection of robust protective helmets in different colors. Whether yellow, blue, orange, green or white: There is no general rule on the colors of the construction helmets and their meaning and use. However, it is popular and makes sense, especially on large construction sites, to identify the various functions, qualifications or professional groups of the wearer with the helmet color. The color of the construction helmet can also be an indication of how long the person has been on the construction site.

On construction sites, primarily white construction helmets usually identify people who are not permanently on the construction site, like foremen, architects, visitors and members of the construction management. This makes the work enormously easier, as the workers who are regularly working on the construction site can be identified immediately.

A distinction is made between blue and yellow protective helmets based on their affiliation to the respective craft. Working groups such as workers, bricklayers and magazine administrators therefore wear yellow helmets. Safety helmets in blue are used by locksmiths and people in the plumbing industry.

Red protective helmets are worn regardless of the trade, but based on the function of the helmet wearer. As a rule, a person who wears a red helmet has a managerial position on the construction site, lik eforemen, forest workers or electricians.

Carpenters wear green helmets, while iron weavers / reinforced concrete workers, forest workers and safety officers wear orange helmets.

Overview of all helmet colors:

  • White: Architects, visitors, site managers, foremen (in mining: Steiger)
  • Blue: Locksmith (also in mining), sanitary area
  • Yellow: Bricklayer, worker, magazine manager (in mining: hauer)
  • Green: Carpenters (in mining: electricians)
  • Red: Electrician, foreman, forest worker (in mining: mine rescue team)
  • Orange: Forest workers, iron weavers / reinforced concrete builders, security officers (also in mining)

How long does a safety helmet last?

Basically, the durability of protective helmets depends on the material, the information provided by the manufacturer and external environmental influences. The UV radiation, cold and heat as well as mechanical loads such as Falls or hits have a significant influence on the durability of a protective helmet. The age of protective helmets is also an important factor, because the quality of plastics deteriorates over time.

In the construction industry, protective helmets made from so-called thermoplastics are usually used on construction sites. With regular and long-term use, protective helmets made of such a material should be changed every four years.

Important to know: The manufacturer's date stamped on the inside of the safety helmet is never the expiry date, but always the production date.
