Eye Hazards

Eye and face protection

Eye and face protection must be worn where there is potential for eye or face injury. [1910.266(d)(1)(vii)]

The protective equipment must comply with ANSI standards [1910.133(b)] (Subpart I, ANSI Z87.1-1989 if purchased after July 5, 1994, or ANSI Z87.1-1968 if purchased before July 5, 1994).

Depending on the application, a corresponding pair of glasses or goggles must be selected.

  • Flying particles (dust, splinters, chips, etc.)

  • Molten metal

  • Liquids (acids, alkalis, etc.)

  • Chemical gases or vapors

  • Radiation (UV rays, light, infrared light)

Safety Glasses or Goggles?

Safety glasses are an excellent option when prioritizing impact protection. However, if you need to safeguard your eyes from liquids, vapors, or dust, it is recommended to use goggles instead. Goggles provide better coverage and offer enhanced protection against potential hazards.

Which safety goggles are right?

Before buying, you should ensure the type of goggles matches the application. Here are some common types of goggles:

Direct Vent Goggles

These goggles are designed to promote airflow to help reduce fogging. These goggles are suitable for protection against impacts but do not meet the need for liquid splash protection, vapor, chemical, or dust exposure.

Indirect Vent Goggles

The purpose of these goggles is to protect the wearer from liquid splashes. This goggle type should not be used where chemical gases or vapors are present. They allow some airflow, which helps to reduce fogging, but these goggles will fog up more than the direct vent goggles. Select goggles with an anti-fogging coating for the best reduction of fogging.

Non-vented Goggles

This goggle has no venting and offers protection against vapors, liquid, and dust. They will fog up quickly and should always have an anti-fog lens.
