Mk8® Evolution® EN14052 Industrial Railway Safety Helmet
The Mk8® Evolution® safety helmet was the first industrial hard hat in the world to meet and exceed the far tougher head protection standard EN14052 – this was the biggest advance in industrial head protection in over 45 years. The EVO®8 safety helmet is designed for today’s highest risk environments where high impact / side impact situations are a concern such as Construction, Mining, Tunnelling, Demolition, Oil and Gas, Offshore Marine, Refinery and Petrochemical, High Pressure Jetting and certain Emergency Services.
