The fundamental use of a industrial helmet is to safeguard the users by reducing and absorbing mechanical energy and restrict any penetration. The high impacts influence and alter the protective and structural capabilities. One of the factor that plays a part in injury is the volume and weight of the helmet besides their energy absorption capacity, and is a threat to the user. Every year plenty of employs are accidentally injured or killed in the working places in the industry. To avoid such injuries or death by wearing a correct safety helmet. Protective head gear will save your life. In recent time impact strength of the helmet using in the industry is low because of irregular material filling, unequal distribution of pressure and blow holes. The main objective of the project is to increase the quality and strength of the helmet by improving the material used for the helmet. To achieve the main aim of the project we started the work in three stages. In the first stage a mold for the helmet is designed by using CATIA V5 software. Then by using the model the analysis is done using ANYSIS software for two different type of material which are GLASS FIBER REINFORCEMENT PLASTIC (GFRP) and GLASS FIBER REINFORCEMENT PLASTIC With ALUMINIUM (GFRP+AL).
