Essential for work at height and certain industrial activities, helmets offer effective protection for the head from falling objects or in case the person himself falls.
In the absence of specific European standards for helmets for workers at height, Petzl refers to two existing standards when developing its line of helmets adapted to professional needs:

  • standard for industrial helmets (EN 397)
  • standard for mountaineering helmets (protection against impacts EN 12492)
