Eye - Face Protection
Employees must wear protection if hazards exist that could cause eye or face injury. Eye and face protection should be used in conjunction with equipment guards, engineering controls, and safe practices.
NOTE: Unless it is documented that there is no potential for eye injury to occur, safety glasses are required in laboratories. Chemical splash goggles should be worn when handling chemical materials.
Always wear adequate eye and face protection when performing tasks such as grinding, buffing, welding, chipping, cutting, pouring chemicals or pipetting. Safety glasses or goggles should be worn in case of impact hazard. Chemical splash goggles provide the most effective eye protection against chemical splashes as well as protection against impact.
