PROTECTION
AGAINST HAZARDS

 

The human eye can be exposed to three basic hazards during work activities – mechanical, chemical or radiation-induced hazards. Some of these hazards can work in parallel or one hazard can be followed by another. Therefore, it is important for the work environment to be thoroughly mapped in terms of hazards. Naturally, other hazards can also be identified, e.g. electric, heat etc. Precise identification of hazards is the basis for selecting the right glasses.EN/str 3 2

EXAMPLES:

  • Mechanical hazards (dust, impact, solid particles such as sand, splinters etc.)
  • Thermal hazards (hot liquids, flames, sparks)
  • Chemical or other biological hazards (acids, solvents, infected blood…)
  • Radiation (ultraviolet or infrared, e.g. while welding, cutting, soldering,…, intense light, laser)

EVEN MINOR INJURIES CAN CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS. ALL IT TAKES IS A TINY GRAIN OF PLASTER TO DAMAGE THE CORNEA.

How to select the correct eye protection

The main requirements for eye protection include dimensions, firmness, optical requirements and additional requirements, which are established by relevant standards. The most important thing is to identify hazards that pose as a threat while working – e.g. if acid, radiation or flying pieces of plaster can penetrate the eye. Then determine the type of protection: safety glasses, goggles, protective goggles or a face mask. You can choose from a selection of classic or trendy eyewear.

When choosing equipment for eye protection, don’t forget about the possibility of needing to wear dioptric glasses. In this case it will be better to select a protective shield; however, you can also choose from protective eyeglasses that dioptric glasses can fit under.
