Goggles protect one of the most sensitive areas of the human body, the eyes. For this reason alone, it should be worn in all cases where risks may arise. The area in which these hazards are present must be clearly indicated and warned of the wearing of protective eyewear. You can also contact Annette if you have any questions about the agreement or purchase in general. Goggles are much more robust than normal goggles and are composed of a safety frame and safety lenses. Glasses may have side panels depending on the specific work for which they are worn. Safety lenses are typically polycarbonate that probably doesn`t break. According to OSHA standards, goggles must be permanently marked with the manufacturer`s marking, followed by a “+” sign if the lenses are strong. Glasses that do not protect against shocks contain only the manufacturer`s labeling. The mark appears in the top or outer corner of the lens on correct goggles. The American National Standard for Occupational and Educational Eye and Face Protection (ANSI Z87.1-2010) defines the protective devices for personal eyes and faces to be worn in certain situations to protect workers from shocks, non-ionizing radiation such as radio waves and liquid injections.
It does not include laser safety, which is covered by another standard. Goggles are not unbreakable or impenetrable and do not protect against serious shock hazards or other hazards such as heat, liquids, chemicals, dust and optical radiation. Additional machine protection devices, face plates, special lens filters and other safety equipment may be required in these situations. Goggles should be worn in areas marked as hazardous and in areas where there may be temporary risks. Modern protective glasses have many possibilities to offer the necessary protection with minimal inconvenience to the wearer. If treated carefully, they last for years and minimize the cost of replacement. Goggles do not sufficiently protect against chemical splashes, even if side panels are used. Glasses allow unprotected areas where they do not fit tightly on the face, especially above and under the frame. Small splashes that end up on the forehead or hair can flow into the eyes, resulting in injury. . . .
