The new PPE Regulation states that helmet mounted ear defenders must be properly accredited to the helmet being used
Often users of Personal Protective Equipment need a combination of items of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to make sure they are adequately protected in work environments. A very common combination is head and hearing protection. To work properly, however, the different types of PPE must be compatible and the end user needs to check that there is a relevant CE certificate to show that they have been accredited to be used together.
Under the new PPE Regulation - and with hearing protection moving to Category III -companies and officers of companies face the prospect of fines if helmet mounted ear defenders have not been properly accredited to the relevant helmet in use. Failure to operate such a policy could mean irreparable hearing damage is caused and claims from workforce.
JSP’s Sonis® helmet mounted ear defenders are accredited for use with JSP’s EVO® helmet range and represent the safest hearing protection solution for end users using JSP EVO® range helmets. JSP have developed this new range of Sonis® Helmet Mounted Ear Defenders which peak at an unbeaten SNR of 36.
