The main task of safety glasses is to protect the eyes and preserve the vision of the personnel in the workplace. Work in many industries - such as oil and gas, chemical, metalworking, pharmaceutical, is associated with increased danger to the eyes. To injure this vulnerable organ, sometimes too bright light is enough, not to mention metal shavings flying in the face, sawdust, acid splashes or small fragments.
To protect your eyes from burns and injuries as much as possible, goggles are used. Seals along the edges of the case provide a tight seal, which is why the glasses fit snugly against the skin and cover the eyes from all sides, and not just from the front. Durable screen material guarantees complete safety during operation. But, of course, it is necessary to take into account the specifics of activities in each industry in order to choose the right eye protection.
Goggles are required for the following types of eye hazards:
From contact with the eyes of chemicals (aerosols, gases, splashes of acids, solvents and other harmful liquids).
Mechanical threats - dust, ash, sawdust, sand, solid and incandescent particles.
Radiation - ultraviolet, blinding light, infrared rays.
From high temperatures.
Safety goggles differ in the type of ventilation
Ventilation is needed to remove excess moisture so that the screen does not fog up. A special anti-fogging coating is applied to the screen material (or drops are sold with the product that prevent the screen from fogging), but the type of ventilation plays an important role:
Direct-vented goggles have small openings in the body through which air enters. Air circulation is important not only to keep the screen transparent, but also to remove excess heat so that the eye area does not overheat. Such eye protection can be used for machining, they perfectly protect against chips and other small particles, but will not protect against fine dust, gas or splashes of aggressive liquids.
Indirectly vented goggles have special devices that allow only air to pass through but provide protection against harmful liquids, fumes, gases and dust.
The viewing angle depends on the design of the model. If you need a wide degree of visibility, you should choose models with panoramic glass. If you need protection from bright rays (for example, when welding), models with opaque lenses and various filters are suitable.
Benefits of goggles

Indirectly vented goggles are airtight and fit tightly against the skin, preventing even the smallest particles from entering the eyes.
Stylish design makes goggles not only a safety tool, but also a stylish accessory.
