Safety helmet warning

14. February 2013 | Comments (0)

Personal protection equipment manufacturer JSP has issued a safety notification after discovering a batch of poor quality counterfeit safety helmets.

The counterfeit hard hats are replicates of JSP’s MkII safety helmet range which are made of such poor quality that they can apparently be split in half with your bare hands. The British Safety Industry Federation believes they have originated from Asia or the Middle East.


The counterfeit helmets are of such poor quality that they can apparently be split in half with your bare hands.

To determine whether they are counterfeit examine the helmet closely for consistency of colour, clarity and legibility of markings and make sure it is durable. Fakes can be easily identifiable from the markings “Burley” and “MkII” under the peak of the hat.

Matthew Judson, JSP’s director of technical support, said: “Users should make sure JSP’s name is branded into the helmet, and ensure that the user information leaflet is original (not a photocopy that is not square on the page), correctly spelled, in multiple languages, and with the manufacture’s contact details listed.”


Examine the helmet closely for consistency of colour, clarity and legibility of markings and make sure it is durable.

“If you suspect a helmet is fake, give us a call and we will send someone out to have a look at it, or take it back to the place you bought it from. If someone had been wearing a bogus helmet and an object had fallen on their head they could be dead. Fakes can kill.”
