Code 2745: 1983-Specification for non-metal helmets for firefighters and civil defense personnel is code 2925: Industrial Safety Helmet Specification, 1984. Is code 4151: 1993-Specification for scooter and motorcycle riders' protective helmets. Is also known as "helmet".
These are the current codes for India. However, since they change often it's best to check with your local government agency or safety certification body about what helmet standards exist in your area.
Code 3521 stands for 1999-Industrial safety belt and harness. Code 4051 indicates that scooter riders should wear protective headgear.
Helmets are required by law to protect riders from injury caused by a crash. There are different types of helmets available, such as motorcyclist helmets, bicycle helmets, and scooter/motorized vehicle riders' helmets. Motorcyclist helmets must comply with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard Z93.1-1999 or its equivalent in other countries. This means that they must be rated in good faith for impact protection against closed head injuries of adults exposed to fall angles up to 30 degrees. They must also meet requirements for side impact protection and come with a chin strap. Bicycle helmets must conform to ANSI standards Z87.1-2001 or its equivalent. These helmets must provide adequate protection for adult cyclists engaged in recreational activities over an average lifetime of 20 years. They cannot be labeled as "sport" or "action" style helmets because these terms are defined by federal law (OSHA regulations). Scooter/motorized vehicle riders' helmets do not have to meet any specific industry standards but they must provide protection against open face injuries due to impacts with objects like poles, trees, etc.
The code for HEAD PROTECTION PPE'S is: Code 2745: 1983-Specification for non-metal helmets for firefighters and civil defense personnel is the code 2925: 1984? Industrial Safety Helmet Specification is code 4151: 1993-Specification for scooter and motorcycle riders' protective helmets. The code for ELECTRICITY RESISTANT GEAR is: Code 2746: 1983-Protective clothing containing at least two sets of complete electrical circuits, each set capable of withstanding 25000 volts or more, so that if either set fails it will not affect the wearer's protection.
The code for AUTOMOTIVE SAFETY BELTS is: Code 2747: 1983-Protection against death or serious injury to vehicle occupants in case of collision by requiring use of lap/shoulder belt systems. This code was originally intended for use only in conjunction with motor vehicles equipped with air bags, but has been expanded to include all passenger cars and light trucks built after January 1, 1998.
The code for SEATBELT USE IS FOR BOTH CHILDREN AND ADULTS. Children are protected by requirements that they be properly secured in their seats or restraint systems, and that seat belts used to restrain children under 13 years of age also contain a latch mechanism to prevent removal by adults who do not know how to release them. Adults are protected by requirements that they wear their seat belts whenever a child is riding in a rear-facing infant seat or booster seat.
Head protection is essential. IS CODE FOR PPE: IS CODE 2925: 1984-Specification Industrial Safety Helmet. IS CODE 4151: 1993-Specification Industrial Safety Helmet. Specification for scooter and motorcycle riders' protective headgear. ISO 9241-1: 1989(E) Standard Test Method for Determining the Effect of Environmental Factors on Performance of Protective Headgear.
The safety helmet code is a mark of approval given by the International Organization for Standardization to protective headgear that meets or exceeds certain requirements set forth in ISO 9241-1/1989(E). The code is usually displayed on the front of the helmet. It is used as evidence of compliance with various international safety standards for workers at risk from flying objects, chemicals, electricity, hot liquids, sharp instruments, tools, and other hazards.
These codes are not ratings of safety. They do indicate that the helmets have met requirements set down by experts who know what types of materials will stand up to normal use. These requirements include limitations on the speed with which things can happen when someone wears a safety helmet, such as preventing objects from hitting the wearer's head at high speeds.
Safety helmets reduce the risk of injury to workers' heads in cases of falls, collisions, explosions, etc. Workers should wear protective equipment whenever there is any chance of it being damaged, such as during an explosion.
The safety helmet's strong shell is intended to protect the head from impact. The following is the IS: 2925-1984 specification for industrial safety helmets. A safety helmet must be tested for shock absorption, with the force transmitted from the head form to the base not exceeding 510 kgf. The helmet should be able to withstand at least 15 blows from a hammer (5 mm thick iron ball) dropped on to the crown of the head from a height of 30 cm.
All plastic safety helmets sold in India should have a label with the statement "ISO 9241-110: 1995." This means that the plastic used to make the helmet has been certified by an international body as being suitable for use in equipment designed for human beings.
The certification process involves subjecting samples of the plastic to mechanical tests, which measure things like hardness and resistance to abrasion. Before the test samples are subjected to heat or chemicals, they are labeled as "provisional" or "accepted." Only after successfully completing these tests can the manufacturer claim that their product meets ISO standards.
Safety helmets reduce the risk of brain injury when there is contact between a hard surface and the head. They may provide some protection against fractures of the skull and other severe injuries. Not all types of head injuries can be prevented by using a safety helmet; for example, if you are hit in the back of the head with a heavy object then the safety helmet will not help.
