Eye protection and safety glasses generally serve to protect workers from hazards exposed to in the work place environment.
Although one would think it is only construction with concrete, dust, metal and other particles that is high risk, we also need think about the following:
- Chemicals or blood borne pathogens(splashes and fumes)
- Mining, Electrical work, plumbing, Welding, carpentry, autorepair, maintenance
- Sport (cricket ball, squash ball)
Eye injuries are a serious matter. Make sure you and your employees are equipped with eyewear in the workspace/sportfield to protect your eyes.
