Personal protective equipment

The eyes have it.

Personal protective equipment designed to protect eyes and face includes safety spectacles, goggles, laser safety goggles and side, face and welding shields. This equipment is required when employees face hazards such as flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids or caustic liquids, chemical gases or vapors, biological hazards or potentially harmful light radiation. Employees must wear protection from radiation during activities such as welding, torching, soldering, brazing and other operations that emit light.

This equipment must comply with the American National Standard Practice for Occupational and Educational Eye and Face Protection.

And that’s smart safety!
