The 360° Safe Helmet is a device to protect the safety of sanitation workers. It can project a warning ring to the ground, alerting drivers in dark conditions and protecting sanitation workers from traffic accidents. The device has the function of head protection when the sanitation workers are doing their cleaning job. And it also can be utilized alone or with a hat. Design Innovation: 1. Compared with the traditional helmet, this product uses LED projection lamp controlled by light induction. Three LED projection lights can throw a circular warning ring, which has a good eye-catching effect. 2. Another innovation of this work is the change of shape. The ring shape design makes it more portable and suitable for sanitation workers, who work in a high-load, high-intensity and high-temperature environment. 3. Another benefit of the ring shape is that the helmet can be adapted to different seasons. It is not only suitable for the hot summer, but also in the cold winter. In winter, the safe helmet can be put on the hat and used together with the hat.
