If an employee of Airbus, then fight as per ideas in the thread. But as a subcontractor, need to comply until it can be challenged the long way round.



You need to be comfortable with the response

Hi
Unless you are indispensable to Airbus and their site regs include wearing a helmet then wear a helmet. Neither the security team nor your employer are responsible for this decision so help them out here too.
Does the security team have a stock of "visitors" helmets and vests that you can borrow/return daily which may be of the general site variety but comply with the e-mail?

So far I've managed to avoid wearing a helmet. Leaving is less risky than entering, but I've started entering by a different gate and I haven't been challenged.

This gate is more logical for me anyway and closer to my place of work and if I'm challenged I can dismount, walk round the corner and remount. :lol:
