Personal Protective Equipment is a collective term of any wearable safety equipment, gear or clothing that can prevent injuries on a job. Coveralls, safety helmets, safety goggles, and gloves are all popular examples of PPE.
PPE is necessary and critical on most jobsites. Precautionary steps to ensure the safety of a worker on-site should always be a top priority. PPE should be a worker’s last line of defense.
In addition to head, hand, body and even feet protection, one of the most critical types of PPE is face and eye protection. Without proper eye and face protection, a worker’s vision becomes impaired and they are at risk for eye injuries. This quickly puts themselves and others at higher risk for an accident.
Safety goggles and glasses are an easy way to protect your vision. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) specifically states that employers must ensure employees have and use appropriate eye safety equipment if they are exposed to:
Not only does OSHA state eye protection should be worn in hazardous conditions, but the safety eyewear must meet ANSI Z87+ requirements.
ANSI rated protective eye wear is simply a set of standards and regulations that helps deliver the best possible and safest PPE. ANSI rated safety glasses must pass testing to minimize injuries from eye hazards.
