Why Buy Safety Glasses?

PPE eye protection safeguards workers’ eyes and faces from the dangers they’re exposed to and is compulsory for some special employees.

As mentioned above, the main benefit of wearing eye protection at work is that the glasses defend your eyes from harm and keep your eyesight clear. Numerous eye injuries could be prevented by wearing safety glasses – by wearing none, you’re fully exposed to hazardous elements.

What Are the Possible Eye Hazards in the Workplace?

Workplace eye protection is needed when the following potential eye dangers are present:

  • Projectiles (dust, concrete, metal, wood and other particles)
  • Chemicals (splashes and fumes)
  • Radiation (especially visible light, ultraviolet radiation, heat or infrared radiation, and lasers)
  • Blood-borne pathogens (hepatitis or HIV) from blood and body fluids

Here are some of the situations in which you must wear eye protection:

  • Construction
  • Electrical work
  • Plumbing
  • Welding
  • Maintenance

Difference Between Safety Goggles and Safety Glasses

When it comes to eye protection, sometimes it’s best to wear regular PPE safety glasses whilst other situations call for the use of safety goggles for complete eye safety.

So, how do you decide between safety spectacles and safety goggles? Below are the main differences between the two.

PPE Eye Spectacles. For the most part, wearing safety glasses will provide you with sufficient protection from hazardous, flying objects, thanks to the safety lenses, frames and side shields. Safety glasses safeguard your eyes from objects that could pierce, bruise or harm the eyes, and are tested to withstand high impacts.


PPE Safety Goggles. For complete eye protection from all elements, you can’t go wrong with PPE safety goggles. These types of protective eyewear feature small gaps around the top, sides and bottom – so they give the wearer a 360-degree coverage around the eyes. Some goggle types include a strap to help hold them securely against the face as well as ventilation holes to help with air flow.

In most cases, you won’t need to wear prescription safety goggles – most people wear their regular prescription glasses or prescription safety spectacles under their goggles for added protection. You’ll need to wear goggles if you’re grinding metal to prevent debris metal fragments ruining your safety spectacles. Glasses alone wouldn’t provide enough protection, as the metal fragments can stick, burn and pit the lenses meaning they’d whisp around your glasses into your eyes.

With the goggle’s 360-degree fit around the glasses, your eyes are totally protected.

Types of Workwear Eye Protection
