Industrial Safety Spectacles and Safety Glasses to keep your Eyes Protected.

Updated on April 6, 2016

Right now you are probably thinking I haven't needed safety glasses so far why should I buy some now? Statistics show that you might be lucky but your luck will run out when your least expecting it. Why take the risk?

There is nothing more important to you than your eyes. People take their eyesight for granted, why do some people take risks by not wearing personal protective equipment to protect their eyes. Your eye protection safety can be almost guaranteed by wearing safety glasses or safety goggles.

Industrial accidents to eyes accounts for over 2000 eye related accidents every day in the USA. When you think how precious your eyes are to you, there must be a lot of people taking chances or risks that could be avoided. I worked in mechanical engineering for over 25 years and never had to visit the hospital, first aid room or seek medical assistance because of not wearing eye protection. If you work in industry your employer should provide eye protection for you to use when you are using machinery, working in a laboratory or working with chemical substances.

It is estimated that approximately 90 per cent of all eye injuries could have been prevented if they had been wearing safety glasses. If you work at home at fixing/repairing your car or doing DIY then it makes sense to wear safety glasses or goggles when you are cutting any material. If you move liquid materials around in your yard then keep a pair of safety glasses close by.

There is a large variety of different industries which could benefit from the use of industrial safety glasses. It isn't just engineering or the building/construction industry where workers are at risk. If you work in any type of factory or industrial site where you work in or are subjected to flying debris, falling objects, chemical spillages and such things then it is essential that you protect your eyes with industrial safety goggle or glasses.

Most companies will provide them if they are needed, it's the law. Make sure you know where they are kept, report any damage to them to your boss, they are cheap to buy and your boss doesn't want to have an industrial eye accident happen to his/her workers. Eye protection should be part of your personal protective gear that you are issued with, it should be checked regularly and kept in good order, ready for you to use.

Go and see your boss today and tell him you need some for your job, he wont say no he has your best interests at heart and doesn't want you to be off work with a serious eye accident.
