Top 3 Reasons To Wear Safety Glasses
- Prevent Damage
Many workplaces have dangerous particles or chemicals floating around in the air (wood, dust, dirt etc.) which can cause irritation as well as long lasting damage to your eyes.
Your home and garden also have dangerous particles and chemicals – your vision is also at risk when not at work. Wearing safety glasses can help prevent these particles and chemicals from damaging your vision.
- UV Protection
Extensive UV light exposure from working long hours outdoors can have a massive negative impact on your eyes. You should always wear safety glasses to ensure you are giving your eyes the best protection available.
- Avoid Accidents
Safety glasses can protect your eyes against dangerous substances such as chemical splashes, oil, grease and fumes etc.
We have a natural tendency to wipe our eyes if they are irritated. If there are chemicals on your hands you risk wiping them into your eyes which could potentially cause irreversible damage e.g. blindness.
