The date code on each helmet indicates when the shell was molded. Date codes are molded into the underside of the shell’s brim with the year and month in which that specific
shell was molded. This date does not indicate a helmet’s service life; the service LIFE BEGINS WHEN PLACED INTO SERVICE.
MSA helmets are designed with high-quality, wear-resistant materials but do not last forever. The helmet’s protective properties will degrade by exposure to many common work environments, such as extreme temperatures, chemical exposure, sunlight, and normal daily wear. MSA recommends the following replacement schedule:
• Suspension (replace every 12 months)
• Helmet (replace every 5 years)
To ensure that a helmet shell or suspension has not reached the end of its service life, MSA recommends the following procedure before and after each use:
• Visually inspect the shell for breakage, cracks, crazing, discoloration, chalky appearance, or any other unusual condition. Also, inspect the shell for brittleness by flexing the brim (do not compress the shell sides). These conditions can indicate a loss of impact, penetration, and/or electrical resistance and the helmet must be replaced immediately.
• The suspension should be checked for loss of flexibility. Check for cracks, breaks, frayed straps, or damaged stitching. If any of these conditions exist, the suspension must be replaced immediately.
NOTE: These are recommended useful service life guidelines. Wear or damage noticed during a regular inspection may determine that an earlier replacement of the entire helmet is necessary. ALWAYS replace the helmet after it has withstood impact or penetration. The life of a Skullgard Helmet tends to exceed our suggested service
life due to the increased rigidity of the helmet’s materials and areas of use. However, as with other personal protective equipment, a Skullgard Helmet’s life should ultimately be determined by routine daily inspection before and after use.
