Abstract: All helmets are designed to prevent head injury of wearer by captivatingmomentum and preventing infiltration. Aside from the ability to absorb energy, their volume and weight are also essential considerations, as increase in both will increase the danger of damage to the user's body parts. Annually, several construction laborswere killed or critically incapacitateddue to head traumas. Appropriate helmet not only decreases the chances of serious damage but also reduces loss of life. This study focuses on increasing the strength of an industrial helmet. This is carried out altering material system and its combinations and analyzing the improved helmet.The helmet was designed in Solid Works, and the analysis was done with the commercial software Ansys. The total deformation, stress distribution, and total strain were used as performance indicators.
