Safety Goggles provide additional eye protection when compared to Safety Glasses. Through their design, Safety Goggles provide a more comprehensive seal around the eye and provide protection for both the eye and surrounding ocular area from dust, airborne particles, liquids, chemicals and vapours (model dependant). Safety Goggles are used across many industries including industrial, manufacturing, mining, construction, agriculture, healthcare, military, law enforcement and emergency services.
The risks and hazards that give rise to the need for Safety Goggles vary across industries. In dusty environments or when a task generates excessive airborne particles, Safety Goggles provide an effective protective measure for preventing particles entering the ocular region and causing eye irritation. Safety Goggles can also provide effective protection from chemical splashes and many Safety Goggles are approved for protection from chemical splashes. In some instances, eye protection is also required from chemical vapours generated from handling chemicals which certain Safety Goggles can provide. Recently, Safety Goggles have also become a popular choice for healthcare workers that are exposed to liquid splashes and airborne droplets. Finally, Safety Goggles can also be manufactured from heat resistant materials that make them suitable for fire fighting. Firefighter Goggles are regularly used by fire fighters, volunteer bush fire brigades, emergency services, farmers & rural property owners.
