Eye protection is one of the most important categories of personal protective equipment. Employees must have eye and/or face protection when they’re exposed to hazards such as chemical vapors, liquid chemicals, injurious light radiation, and flying particles in order to prevent long-term damage and blindness.
Remind workers that eye protection is required with eye protection labels. These labels use symbols to depict what type of protection is needed for the situation (safety glasses, shields, or goggles) and explain why. Made from material that’s UV, chemical, and water resistant, these eye protection labels will hold up in an industrial setting and ensure that workers are using the PPE they need in order to stay safe.
