What is eye and face protection?

eye protectionEye and face protection refers to protective equipment such as glasses, goggles, face shields, or welding shields which are designed to protect the wearer against a variety of hazards.

Serious eye injuries from high-speed projectiles can result from working with power tools that grind, cut and saw, even welding tools, power trimmers and lawn mowers can cause such hazards. Working with any type of power tool and even many manual tools have the potential to cause things to fly through the air, and potentially damage the eyes. Be prepared when engaging in any of these activities by using the correct safety glasses as required.
