RR762 – Diving helmet impact testing

Diving helmets used today by the majority of commercial divers in the UK are developed from the Standard Diving Dress of over 40 years ago. These brass helmets provided a large space around the head and fitted onto a yoke on the diver’s shoulders.

The aim of this research project was to investigate the level of protection current commercial diving helmets provide.
