SAFETY CIRCULAR 12/2010
WEARING OF BEANIES OR SIMILAR UNDER HELMETS
FESA has recently had a determination on the wearing of beanies or other similar products, e.g. skull caps, under FESA issued helmets. The wearing of beanies or similar products under helmets reduces the effectiveness of the helmet in the following ways. The helmets ability to fit securely. Reduced dissipation of heat from the head. Introduction of non-flame resistant material into the helmet. As such, under no circumstances should beanies or similar be worn under helmets by FESA staff or volunteers.
