Contact the British Mountaineering council - they'll have heaps of stuff about this - and will be able to point you in the direction of others who may be able to help.

Also, contact Lyon Equipment - they have produced results into the study of PPE for climbing/ rescue/ work at height. if nothing else they will be able to furnish you lots of technical blurb about helmets etc - and they're very friendly and helpful

good luck

The BMC will be able to provide empirical evidence obtained from testing carried out by their equipment testing committee. You might also want to have look at the Mountain Rescue websites. Most teams supply details of incidents which will give you anecdotal evidence of the value of helmets.

UCIAA (something French = International climbers' union!!) set the international standards and could be a backup to the BMC Tech Committee's work & info.
