In the case of the corner worker being told to tell them to put it back on, it's likely in case of another accident at the track that could collide with the downed rider.
Unless absolutely necessary, DO NOT remove a downed rider's helmet. However, that's only because of the possible damage that could be caused while removing it. If it's already off, it's a ludicrous suggestion to put it back on. Absolutely terrible advice to do such a thing. You would then have to contend with the possibility of injury due to putting it back on and then taking it back off again. I'm actually quite speechless that a paramedic would suggest such a thing.

Common sense. I've seen many silly things done by good samaritans, some who want to be heros.
I know a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing but the more we learn (safe removal of helmet)
the less dangerous we can learn to be.
Once when riding came across single bike mva, poor rider was choking, no body would touch the
helmet, I loosened the chin strap therefore no choking.
Waited for the ambulance.
