    Head Safety and the Role of Personal Protective Equipment in Welding Industry

    Biologically, the head is one of most intricate structures in the human body. It is a complicate cluster of many organs altogether including eyes, ears, nose, mouth and skull. All sensory functions of the body are controlled by the head. Therefore, a human head is significantly responsible for all day-to-day functioning of the body.

    Considering the importance of this crucial part of the body - protecting head is given utmost attention at all hazardous workplaces. In welding industry, as technology is rising evidently, engineers and equipment manufacturers have designed an assortment of head protectants for the welders in order to ensure their workplace safety. All the high-end personal protective equipment (PPE) are primarily manufactured to give a sense of easiness and comfort to the welders. This is why, there is a noti
