How To Protect Your Eyes At Work

You must always wear eye protection where the danger of eye injury from flying particles, flash or splash hazards exists.

If anything enters your eye, go to your trained first aider – do not try to remove it yourself and do not let a fellow worker try. Remember, you only have two eyes, so look after them well.

Correct eye protection must be worn when:

  • Welding and cutting – electric or oxy-acetylene.

  • Chipping – steel, concrete, brick etc.

  • Grinding and buffing.

  • Riveting.

  • Operating any metal working machine, lathe, saw, drill, etc.

  • Operating any wood turning machine, lathe, saw, drill, etc.

  • Operating any portable power tool.

  • Operating any explosive power tool.

  • Operating any compressed air tool.

  • Using compressed air.

  • Pouring any molten metal or substance.

  • Using or handling any acid or caustic solution.

  • Working sheet metal.

  • hammering occurs as part of any operation.

  • there is a risk of airborne particles, sand, dust, etc.

If you are assisting in any of these operations, you too, must wear the correct protection.
