Depending on where you work and what you do, your eyes could be at risk or harm by numerous hazards. Recognizing these risks will help you determine the appropriate type of safety eyewear. View the product catalogue.
Don’t be fooled by the word particles—they may be small, but flying particles have enough mass and velocity to potentially pierce or cut your unprotected retinas. Moving machinery and striking fixed objects are also common workplace eye hazards.
Even if you don’t work directly with hazardous materials, they may linger in the air of your workplace. Dust particles, flux materials used in certain tasks, and metal fumes and smoke from arc welding suspended in the air can be potential eye hazards.
Hazardous chemicals are an eye hazard at many workplaces—even if you don’t work directly with them. Incidental contact due to splash events creates the risk of exposure to water, paint and other chemicals.
Sources of optical radiation hazards (ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR)) include welding, brazing, cutting, furnaces, heat treating, high intensity artificial and natural light sources and ultraviolet (UV) lamps.
