Eye protection is a type of (safety) personal protective equipment (PPE) helped in preventing injury to the eye. The eyes are one of the most principal organs as well as exposed parts of human body. Eyes are easily injured by many things such as small particles, chemicals, biological agents, strong visible light and non-visible rays. Eyes should be protected by using appropriate eye protection.
- Goggles: Goggles may be vented or non-vented.
- Non-vented goggles protect eyes from vapors, mists, fumes, or other hazards eyes must be completely covered, but the material hazard does not require covering all exposed skin.
- Vented goggles protect from moderated quantities of liquids with no vapor or mist danger. Several types exist. For example, the common, hardware-store goggle has holes drilled into the plastic. This is unsuitable for laboratory work because liquids can get through the holes. Vented laboratory goggles have a series of buttons embedded into the plastic. These buttons house a baffle plate that allows air to pass but present a physical barrier to liquids.
