Eye and Face Protection Equipment Tests

Eye and Face Protection Equipment Tests

Certain factors should be taken into consideration in choosing the most suitable eye and face protection. For example, eye and face protection equipment should be capable of protecting against certain workplace hazards, fit and fit comfortably on the face, provide unlimited visibility and ease of movement, be durable and clean, and allow unlimited operation of other necessary personal protection equipment.

Eye and Face Protection Equipment Tests

A few of the most common eye and face protection equipment are:

  • Safety glasses: It has safety frames made of metal or plastic and shockproof lenses. In addition, side protection is required.
  • Chemical splash goggles: Eye protection equipment that completely covers the eyes, eye sockets and face area around the eyes and fits tightly to the face. It provides protection against impact, dust and splashes.
  • Dust goggles: Also called ventilated goggles, dust goggles are eye protection equipment that prevents the passage of large particles in the air and fits tightly to the face.
  • Liquid-resistant shields: These are liquid-resistant or impermeable and provide splash protection from biological substances such as body fluids. These guards do not protect against chemicals or impact hazards.
  • Face shields: Extends from eyebrows under the chin and across the width of the employee's head and protects against potential fluid splashes or dangerous liquid sprays. For protection against UV rays, it should be specially designed to protect the face and eyes from dangerous radiation.
  • Laser glasses: This type of glasses should be used only at the wavelength for which it was designed and in energy and power.
  • Welding shields: These shields protect the eyes from burns caused by infrared or intense radiant light. It also protects both eyes and face from flying sparks, metal splashes and slag chips during welding, soldering and cutting.

Such equipment should generally comply with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards.

The main eye and face protection equipment tests performed by our organization include:

  • Protection in cloudy and foggy weather (ISO 12312)
  • Light transmittance (EN 167 / ANSI Z87.1)
  • Light refraction difficulty (EN 167)
  • Surface damage due to small particles (EN 168)
  • Transmittance (UV - Vis - IR) (ISO 12311)
  • Breaking forces (ANSI Z87.1)
  • Light emission (EN 167)
  • Polarizing filters, light transmittance (maximum / minimum) (ISO 12311)
