    Foreword

    Personal Protective equipments has today gained a lot of relevance owing the

    increased industrial activity of different types like oil field, offshore, mining, tunneling,

    quarrying, ship building, construction projects and similar occupations. Hazards exist in

    workplace in many different forms: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals,

    noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. Employees are exposed to these

    unsafe and unhealthy environments which poses serious threats of injury, which are

    sometimes fatal leading to untimely death. Head protects our brain which is the most

    important organ of our body controlling all our body parts and functions. Head injuries

    caused in industrial accidents are usually very serious which may end up in permanent

    disability or sometimes it may even lead to death.

    Taking cognizance of safety needs of workers in the work place, Indian Standard

    specification IS: 2925 was prepared for Industrial Safety Helmets capable of providing

    adequate protection from falling objects and other hazards commonly met with in many

    industries. This Standard was first published in 1964 and revised in 1974. Second revision of

    the standard was adopted in 1984.

    This manual has been prepared in order to lay down general guidelines to harmonize

    and streamline the different approaches adopted by the Branch Offices (BO) for Certification

    against this Indian Standard. This manual envisages drawing a clear outline for the different

    stages of Grant of Licence like the details to be included in the Scope of the licence, the

    recommended manufacturing process, sample size for Independent Testing, disposal of

    remnants of sample, etc.
