How to Get Your Eyes Protected at Work

Eye injuries are very common in a workplace. How do you protect your eyes? By wearing glasses, goggles, and face shields, depending on the type of work you are doing. Eyewear is important for safety because, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, three out of five accidents at work happened when the PPE was not worn at all or when the workers were wearing the wrong type of protection for the job. That is why it makes sense to consult a safety professional before making a purchase of eye protective equipment. Your trusted distributors can answer all your safety questions.
