Mountain Safety

MCofS Supports BMC Helmet Campaign

Thursday 22nd November 2012

 

The BMC Helmet Campaign

As part of its safety and good practice work, the BMC is running a campaign to raise awareness about climbing helmets. The campaign is supported by the MCofS.

The aim of the campaign is to challenge views on helmets, and to encourage mountaineers to re-examine their reasons for wearing one or not. The campaign aims to make that choice an informed one, by giving the latest advice and information on how helmets work and what risks they can help protect against.

Full details of the campaign including a booklet and video are now available on the MCofS website. We encourage members to make themselves aware of this information and the advice provided.
