Choose the right safety eyewear for the job

  • Impact - Flying Particles or Objects

    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.


  • Foreign Materials

    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.

  • Contact with Chemicals

    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.

  • Optical Radiation

    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.
