This changes the retention strength of the helmet's fully adjustable 4-point chinstrap to give conformity to either the Construction Helmet EN397 or the Climbing Helmet standard of EN12492 for working at height.
Simply flick the switch up when working at ground level to give the chinstrap a release force between 15kg and 25kg for EN397 so the helmet can release if snagged or switch down to give the chinstrap a release force of greater than 50kg for EN12492 to limit the risk of losing the helmet in a fall from height.
The patent-pending EVO®5 Dualswitchâ¢ meets all requirements of the ANSI Z89.1-2009 Type I Class C for helmet safety as well as the Canadian CSA Z94.1-05 Type 1 Class C standards. EN 397 and EN 12492 standards are also met with the robust Expanded Polypropylene liner for class leading impact protection, as are the EN 50365 requirements for electrical insulation when the chinstrap is set to EN397 position. It will also meet the optional requirements of the EN 397 standard for lateral deformation and use in low temperatures.
The EVO®5 safety helmet features an extremely robust ABS shell designed for superior protection and an easy to use Revolution® wheel ratchet with a 3D adjustment harness, which offers 1-2-3 point depth settings for a perfect fit. The distinctive five stripe design and the JSP shield shape is a registered badge of trade origin and internationally recognised as a mark of quality.
Universal attachment slots enable fitting of the many Surefitâ¢ helmet accessories JSP offer, including safety visors, Sonis® ear defenders and the Evospec® integrated eyewear. CR2â¢ reflective material can be added to increase worker visibility.
The JSP's EVO®5 Dualswitchâ¢ is the perfect choice for construction workers or those working at height such as cellular and wind energy technicians, tower climbers, rescue workers and many people working in industrial production facilities where climbing for maintenance is required such as petrochemical sites, gas production facilities, and pharmaceutical manufacturing sites.

One of the biggest issues for many firms can be that the person put in charge of electrical (or building) safety is not a technical expert. Bill Bates, a former Health and Safety Executive principal inspector with over 20 years of investigating electrical safety breaches, says: “It is becoming increasingly prevalent that those responsible for controlling electrical risks have little electrical experience. They probably have neither the competence and hence the confidence to deal with their responsibilities.
