1. Mk8 Evolution™ Testing
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.00Mb)

Description:

The Mk8 Evolution™ is the only industrial safety helmet in the world meeting and exceeding the new far tougher head protection standard EN14052.

The new EN14052 standard requires the helmet to withstand forces over 3 times the crown impact level of those in the old EN397 standard and for the first time provide protection from side impacts to the same level as forces experienced on the crown impact test of EN397!!! It is the biggest step forward in head protection since the old British Standards came into force in the 1970’s which later formed into the EN397 standard. Whilst some helmets have been made much lighter with material effectively being taken out of areas away from the over-emphasised crown impact test area of EN397 so they are cheaper to manufacture, there is a resultant reduction in peripheral safety performance of such ‘lightweight’ EN397 helmets.

EN14052 effectively deals with this issue as it is such a severe standard and far better suited to protecting against the real hazards of working on today’s sites as opposed to the old standard more suited to sites typical of the 1970’s.

Modern sites are typically far more frenetic, with more equipment and machinery operating, with the peripheral dangers of swinging objects from cranes and the like, as well as in general being much higher rise meaning greater velocity and load masses of falling objects.

EN14052 Vs EN397

The EVO8™ Safety Helmet is tested from more than double the height of helmets that meet EN397. EN14052 also requires that the same helmet is tested twice, once on the crown and once on either, the left or right side, front or back. Together with the testing height of up to 2.5 metres, passing EN14052 means the Mk8 Evolution™ can take 3 times the impact of any other EN397 helmet on the market. However, the EVO8™ doesn’t just meet the new EN14052 standard, it exceeds it. No other safety helmet offers this level of protection. JSP has designed this product to save lives. If you are serious about safety, you will wear the JSP EVO8™.

For users of the Cobra Welding Shield, the above video is a detailed visual description of how to change the polycarbonate front lens!

5. Safety Video
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

This is a video showing details of all safety aspects of JSP's many products designed to suit all scenarios. This is a particularly useful video to show people ignorant to the obvious reasons as to why we should wear PPE.
Please note, it is a large video file and those of you not on a good internet connection may experience some delay in being able to watch the video...

6. Mk7 Extensive Testing
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

In EN397, there is an area of 100mm diameter stipulated by the standard, and all impact and penetration tests are carried out within this circle. However, venture outside this 'magic circle' and the helmet doesn't need to conform to any standard. But imagine the site situation:
if something were to fall on your head, would it always fall directly onto the crown? What if you were looking down, and the object struck just 20mm outside the 'magic circle'. Play the following clip and you'll see the JSP mk7 helmet receive such a blow. Tough little shell, isn't it?!



7. JSP Mk3 Helmet Penetration Test
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

In this video, we have a close up view of the JSP Mk3 Helmet. We've seen impact tests in earlier posts and we've also seen the effect the test weight has on a certain member of the Cucurbitaceae family (watermelon - I was trying to be clever).
Here we can see the 3kg 'spiked' weight, which has fallen from a static point 1 metre above the test subject...

8. JSP Atlantic Goggle
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

OK. Let's look at another impact test, this time on the very popular Atlantic Goggle.
A couple of things to look out for: watch for flexing in the body of the goggle as the impact made by the 6mm ball bearing is dissipated across the body, creating very little transitional force on the user's face. Secondly, look at the effect on the polycarbonate lens. You can obviously see the dent made by the ball bearing, but there is no cracking, and there is no damage to the rest of the goggle itself, because of the way the energy has been absorbed.

9. Retractaspec
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

So, to another form of eye protection. When wearing a safety helmet, it's sometimes impractical to wear safety spectacles, or you simply got to the top of the scaffolding and forgot to bring some up with you. So mounted to the inside of your JSP safety helmet is a handy slide-down eye protector! Which performs particularly well when something travelling at 100mph trys to remove an eye for you...

Retractspec = EN166 1.F

10. Mk3 Helmet Test
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

A video of a proper test this time (it's not all about squishing fruit in new and exciting ways). The helmet is mounted on a headform, which is, in turn, mounted onto a load cell. This load cell can tell us exactly what amount of energy is transferred onto the head of a user. The limit is 5kN, and our average is about 1.6kN, way below the limit...

11. Protect your head! Use JSP Mk7!

Description:

Remember the watermelon we splattered in an earlier video post? Well, you'll be glad to know it was protected once upon a time, and this video is evidence of it! A Mk7 JSP helmet protects the juicy fruit expertly, and on taking off the helmet, we are pleased to tell you that no injury was suffered... for a bit anyway.

Description:

The Polycarbonate Invincible Faceshield is rated at medium energy, high speed rating, in accordance with EN166:2002, making i possible to resist a 6mm ball bearing at 270mph - the same as a goggle. Only, with a faceshield, it covers the whole face, providing total, excellent protection.

16. Hot Helmet Impact Test!
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

This video shows an impact tested helmet that has been preconditioned to a temperature of 50 degrees celcius to simulate the environment exposure in warmer climates. Note the helmet depresses a lot, but the harness underneath keeps the impacted area well away from the skull at all times.

17. We've shown heads, now what about eyes?
http://jspsafety.blogspot.com/... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, 0.11Mb)

Description:

So, as previous videos have shown, wearing head protection is probably a good idea, unless you want the brain's equivalent of melon seeds everywhere. But what about eyes? In this video, we use a cherry tomato to replicate the human eyeball, and fire a 6mm steel ball bearing at it, at 120 metres/second (270mph). Do you want to put your safety spectacles on now then? Thought so...

18. Yet Another Melon Test!

Description:

As if the point were not clear and obvious enough, here's another video showing the effect of an object falling onto human head. This is an impact testing weight of 5kg, dropped from a static point, 1 metre above the specimen...
