Why it is important to use Safety Goggles?

Different types of accidents occur most commonly at industrial sites. Be it chemical accidents or electrocuting nobody can ensure a total safety at the workplace even after providing safety equipment. Most of the eye hazards take place in an unpredictable situation due to the factors like heat, light, mechanical injuries, flying dust and other suspensions. Workers may be unaware of the contaminated air around the coal chimney or silica vaporizer that can create irritation to their eyes. Or to the next extent they might be exposed to the polluted air for a longer time, and suddenly the eye reaction hampers their eye vision. Likewise, the railway construction site near a diesel reservoir has an atmosphere containing hot hydrocarbon vapor. In such conditions, we must provide proper eye protection to our workers and assure their complete safety.

What are Safety Goggles?

Safety goggles are designed to provide eye protection against various hazards like chemical splashes, contaminants in lab, clean-rooms, heavy industrial environments with a direct or indirect venting design. Its primary purpose is to protect the eyes from physical damage or any infections that can catch from various elements present in the surrounding. It comes in different shapes and styles. Also, it comes with various coatings like anti-scratch, anti UV, anti-static, and anti-fog. Let us see various reasons to use the safety goggles as eye protection.

Protection from various hazards:

  • Chemical, acidic or caustic liquids

There is a presence of chemical, acids and caustic liquids around the laboratories, medical testing and lab centers, pathology, oil refineries, etc. So the workers present in these institutes work closely with these harmful substances. It is necessary to make sure that the workers are using safety goggles while handling these chemicals and acids. Also, it is beneficial if the goggles are having properties like anti-fog, high impact resistance, and anti-corrosion.

  • Direct contact with UV/IR radiations

Exposure to UV rays is the environmental concern of not just you and me but the big concern of WHO organization as well. Thus, it is included in every industrial standard for the workers to use the best UV Protection eye-wear that guarantees total eye safety from UV radiations. Even it is made compulsory for the workers to keep on the UV protective eye goggles when they are in sunny & polluted environment.

  • Molten metal particles

The industries like coal mine or heavy metal construction and purification have an intense thermal environment. This environment consists of molten metal vapor that can affect the worker’s eyes badly. Along with metal refineries, there are local automobile garages consisting of high energy radiations that are very harmful to eye vision. Thus, it is important to wear safety goggles always while working in the industry.

Different types of Safety Goggles:

Welding safety goggles - Welding processes include intense UV and IR rays that are invisible but can cause an eye injury. Welding safety goggles provide a high degree of protection while performing this task.

Laboratory goggles - Lab safety glasses are chemical resistant and fog-resistant eye-wear. It protects the eyes from harmful acid & chemical splashes with full closure design. It usually has a wide panoramic field of vision. It is made up of both hard and soft components, and thus, users can wear it for a longer time.
