Head protection equipment is an important part of daily personal protective equipment (PPE) for many careers and applications, alongside other available PPE protective clothing. Protective headwear includes products such as bump caps, safety helmets, hard hats and assorted accessories, such as sweatbands, chin straps and eye protection.

If you are unsure of the right head protection you need, we have guides to assist you in your decision making with our Workplace Safety Guide and the PPE & Regulations Guide.
Hard hats, also known as safety helmets, are necessary to protect your head from falling objects and external obstacles like low ceilings, especially within the construction industry and working-at-height environments. Hard hats should be free from damage before wear and meet EN397 safety regulations.
Bump caps will not protect your head from falling objects but are an important item to protect you from other head hazards like bumps and scrapes. They are typically worn when working in enclosed spaces, especially in, around and underneath machinery. Bump caps should meet the safety standard EN812. If you are working in an environment where there is a risk from falling objects, then use a hard hat.
We have a range of head protection accessories suitable for use and they provide you with added protection within any environment. Our hard hat accessories will help protect your face, eyes, ears, chin and the range available covers, eye shields, chin straps, neck protection, liners and sweatbands, hoods and sweatbands, safety lights, hi-vis markings.
