How long should I wear a safety helmet before replacing it?
|Protec Staff29/03/2007 10:39:11||A small clock dial moulded on the inside of the helmet will indicate the month and year of manufacture. The helmet has a shelf life of up to 5 years from this date and a maximum working life of 2 years beyond this. Certain hazards such as exposure to ultra-violet light will reduce this dramatically. Like all PPE it is advisable to inspect your safety helmet regularly for damage and err on the side of caution when it comes to replacement.|
