Safety helmet is one of the most important PPE used inside refinery area for protection of head against any impact from falling objects or hitting against any structure. It is therefore, important to use safety helmets designed as per Indian Standards by all workforces at refinery sites. Use of non-standard safety helmet often results in providing poor safety protection of head. Statistically, there are many accidents occurring in industries due to use of poor safety helmet. There was no testing mechanism /facilities available at industry level to test robustness of safety helmet. In search of establishing our own testing facility, Gujarat Refinery team F and S had brain storming sessions and developed one for the testing machine to test penetration resistance of a safety helmet in house. Though, Refinery standard for safety helmet is high and safety helmets procured are as per BIS and EN standard. But during course of its use, there is possibility of deterioration of its quality and most important is that a safety helmet must resist impact from a falling object as minimum.
