National Facial Protection Month really started as a way to raise public awareness and remind parents, caregivers, coaches and athletes to wear certain safety products to protect their mouth and face while playing sports. But it’s also a great reminder for workplace safety as eye and face injuries are very common in a variety of workplaces. Eye and face injuries are commonly caused by flying or falling objects, and different types of hazards require different types of protection. In other words, not all personal protective equipment (PPE) is appropriate for every situation!
When thinking about the most appropriate eye and face protection equipment for certain situations, one should answer these basic questions:
Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide eye and face protection whenever workers are exposed to related hazards. It addresses these requirements in several standards, including General Industry (29 CFR 1910) Construction Industry (20 CFR 1926), Shipyard Employment (29 CFR 1915) and Longshoring (29 CFR 1918).
It is estimated that most facial and eye injuries could be prevented or made less severe with the right protection and safety processes in place.
