ISEA - ANSI/ISEA Z89.1
American National Standard for Industrial Head Protection
|Publication Date:||1 January 2014|
This standard establishes minimum performance and labeling requirements for protective helmets used in industrial and occupational settings under normal temperature conditions and optionally at high and low temperatures and when worn in the reversed position. It also includes requirements for high-visibility helmets and specifies test methods for evaluating all requirements.
Helmets conforming to the requirements of this standard are designated both by Type (based on location of impact force) and Class (based on electrical insulation) as well as any optional feature.
This standard does not cover bump caps, firefighting helmets or head protection devices used in recreational activities.
User cautions and recommendations on use and care of helmets are given in Appendix A of this standard.
This standard establishes minimum performance requirements for protective helmets that reduce the forces of impact and penetration and that may provide protection from electric shock (not arc flash).
