Safety equipment for the head, face, eyes, hearing
The head, along with the hands and feet, is probably the part of the body most exposed to the risk of accidents at work. The hygiene cap and safety helmet provide protection for the head in food processing factories, for example.
On board, the helmet is different for the various activities carried out at sea: the workman-type protective helmet is used on cargo ships and the specially designed ventilation helmet is used for fishing or on oil platforms. These safety helmets must comply with applicable safety regulations and can come with protection for the ears and chin as well.
