Headtorch (UK) or headlamp. A miner īs helmet/head lamp is sometimes referred to as a cap lamp/caplamp.

I īve also seen it called a head mounted torch,
head lamp / head light (two words) [a car headlight is one word]

Apodo, headlamp can be spelt as one word or two - both are used by camping outlets.  I īve also seen headlight as an acceptable version for this on overseas camping websites.
