House Passes Sports Helmets Safety Bill Introduced by Klarides Sisters

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, Sports  Comments Off on House Passes Sports Helmets Safety Bill Introduced by Klarides Sisters
May 012018
 

Yesterday, the House unanimously passed legislation, introduced by House Republican Leader Themis Klarides and State Rep. Nicole Klarides-Ditria, which will provide consumers with better information regarding the safety of sports helmets.

The Klarides sisters brought this legislation forward after, Jason Klein of Force3 Pro Gear, a local Derby business, expressed his frustration that his company and others were unable to share their helmet safety test results with the public.

According to Klein, sports safety helmets are tested by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment. The NOCSAE helmet standard uses a pass/fail threshold to determine whether or not a helmet meets the standard performance criteria. The NOCSAE pass/fail threshold is 1200 Severity Index units or SI. A helmet must test below 1200 SI in all 16 designated and random impact locations, including impacts at a helmet in ambient, high and low temperatures.

Klein said in testimony, “There’s been no place for an athlete or parent seeking helmet safety information to turn and no way for them to compare results with other helmets currently on the market.”

Rep. Klarides and Klarides-Ditria said in a joint statement, “Helmet manufacturers should be able to tell the public that their protective equipment is tested and safe. We want to thank Jason for bringing this forward. This legislation will keep athletes of all ages safe.”

The bill now heads to the Senate.

Nearly 200 die-hard runners participated in the Cohen and Wolf Cinco K de Mayo road race and walk this morning.

The weather wasn’t the worst ever, but at 50+ degrees and with a steady sprinkle of rain everyone crossed the finish line a little damp but feeling victorious nonetheless.

The overall winner was Jeffrey Townsend, 46, of Woodbridge, whose time was 18:56; Megan Thompson, 50, of Mansfield Depot was the first female to cross the finish line at 24:25.
