Badge of origin

30 November 2015

The millions of people who wear JSP's industrial safety helmets worldwide know and instantly recognise their highly distinctive ‘shield’ shape on the front. 

The carefully crafted identifying shape has evolved over the last 40 years for the purpose of clearly distinguishing the helmet from others in the marketplace as a true JSP article, and therefore to be trusted by procurers, site managers and users to give impressive head protection with its high quality and durability. 

JSP's Shield shape badge of identity has become ever more important in recent years owing to the increasing proliferation of cheap, illegal, counterfeit helmets in international circulation that do not meet the requirements of British and European Standard EN397. The use of fake PPE can have devastating consequences, including injury or even death from objects falling onto a substandard helmet. 

Because each JSP helmet is unique, wearers can also use JSP's online tracing and verification system at www.jspcheck.com to validate the DNA of their helmets in a matter of seconds by using each helmet’s individual barcode, which allows it to be tracked throughout its life. 

Among best-selling models in JSP's core range of EVO helmets are the EVOLite, the world’s strongest yet lightest industrial safety helmet, and the Mk8Evolution, the world’s strongest safety helmet.
