Evaluation

An LED work light, which can be attached to a working helmet to provide 360-degree illumination of surrounding areas. In the U.S., annually 200,000 workers are injured on construction sites at night. Although solutions to protect the safety of workers on construction sites at night were traditionally limited to reflector vests and head lamps, this product focuses on enabling workers "to be visible by others" as well as "seeing the surroundings." This concept with a more positive perspective on safety is more convincing. It is valued as a solution with high-degree of perfection which protects the safety and convenience of workers with simple operation allowing you to switch modes with only one button, a lightweight body design that is worker-friendly, and the high durability that is required on tough construction sites.
