Revised ANSI Standards for Head Protection

Head Protection
ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009 Revised to Include Three Non-Mandatory Features for Head Protection
The updated ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009 Standard has been released. This voluntary industry standard establishes the types and classes of industrial helmets and provides performance and testing requirements for them. Additions to this standard are easy to understand, and the basics of Z89.1 regarding Types I & II classifications have not changed.

Three non-mandatory tests have been added. Manufacturers who want to claim any of these features can (1) test their helmets according to the new procedures, and (2) mark their products appropriately.

Three Non-Mandatory Tests Outlined in ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009:
1. Reverse Donning
In order for a helmet to be worn in reverse or a swing ratchet suspension to be used in a helmet, that particular helmet must be marked with the symbol (reverse donning) to indicate that it meets the new ANSI/ISEA Z8S.1-2009 non-mandatory reverse donning test In order to do this, the helmet's suspension must be reversed so that the nape strap is in the rear (back of wearer's head).
2. Lower Temperature (LT)
Helmets that meet ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009 requirements for LOWER temperatures can be marked with LT by the manufacturer.
3. High Visibility (HV)
Helmets that meet the non-mandatory requirements for high visibility, including special tests for Chromaticity and Luminescence for added visibility, can be marked with HV by the manufacturer.

Electrical Performance
The electrical performance requirements in the 2009 Standard are identical to those in the 2003 Standard
1. CLASS E (Electrical) Helmets intended to reduce the danger of exposure to high-voltage electrical conductors, proof-tested at 20,000 volts.
2. CLASS G (General) Helmets intended to reduce the danger of exposure to low-voltage electrical conductors, proof-tested at 2,200 volts.
3. CLASS C (Conductive) Helmets not intended to provide protection from electrical conductors.

All Safety Products sells head gear that meets new revised ANSI standards.
