Here at Bodyguard Workwear, we can supply you with protective bump caps which offer an alternative form of head protection. Whilst they are not designed to protect against falling or flying objects, bump caps can help to minimise injury from impact. For example, if you’re working in an environment where there is risk of impact to the head due to low or restricted clearances (heights) a safety bump cap can act as a barrier to soften the blow if it happens. You can perform shell tests to see if your protective bump cap material springs back after being pressed in - if this happens then your safety bump cap is still effective.
Safety bump caps are easier to wear than your standard hard hat helmet. Safety bump caps have adjustable straps and these protective bump caps do not add height to your head. At the same time, they are more lightweight than hard hats and they generally do not impair your vision. Safety bump caps provide some protection against sharp objects, lacerations and some can provide some protection from the colder weather. The level of protection required should be outlined by your workplace according to industry but will mostly depend on potential hazard exposure.
Browse our extensive range of workwear hat products to determine which protective bump cap is most suited to your environment, and if you need any advice please contact our dedicated customer service team, one of whom will be delighted to assist you with your requirements.
