August 25, 2006, Newsletter Issue #29: Level of Protection For Safety Glasses

Tip of the Week

Based on OSHA regulations, the level of protection selected in terms of safety eyeglasses is divided into a basic and high level of protection.
Safety glasses offering only the basic level of protection are safety eyewear that has successfully withstood the force of having a one-inch steel ball dropped onto them. Safety glasses assessed with a high level of protection can withstand numerous quarter-inch balls of steel thrown at them without breaking.

The level of protection chosen will therefore depend on the task being completed.
