Protection and Practicality

Protection for Work and Sport

Today, we take it for granted that workers in heavy industry or dangerous jobs wear standard safety helmets. In fact, protective headgear was confined to a few industries until recently, and became compulsory in those industries only around the 1950s. Likewise, headwear for hockey and football players, motorcyclists and racing car drivers was standardized only recently.
