Your eyes and face can be injured by many things on the job; flying particles from shipping, grinding, sawing, hammering or other activities can damage the eye. Chemicals and harmful lights from welding or lasers can also cause injuries. Safety glasses have strong frames and impact resistant lenses and provide protection from the side with the use of side shields. Face shields are designed to cover the whole face and are made of plastic, since face shield protect against dust and splashes but not impact goggles or safety glasses should be worn underneath for added protection.
