Dust, particles, chemicals and hot liquids are just a few of the hazards commonly found in workplaces in a wide range of industries. If any of these hazards affect the delicate eye area, the consequences can range from irritation to permanent sight loss. Work safety laws require employees to take reasonable steps to protect workers and the most effective way to protect the eyes is with good quality safety glasses.
Within our range of work safety equipment, we stock an extensive inventory of PPE – Personal Protective Equipment, where you’ll be sure to find the right protective glasses for your needs.
Eye protection may be needed in many different circumstances. Any manufacturing work – particularly when tools may cause dust, particles or sparks – will require safety goggles. If your operations include science-based activities whether in labs or in schools, colleges or hospitals: those taking part in these pursuits are also likely to need good protective glasses to prevent chemicals or other foreign bodies from entering the eye. This list is by no means exhaustive, and effective eye protection should always be worn if there is any likelihood of danger to the eye.

Options include single lens safety glasses which are anti-mist and scratchproof, ideal for protecting the eyes during occupations such as soldering and grinding.

Eye safety is a key part of environmental protection with failure being potentially catastrophic. The worst-case scenario for an eye injury is permanent sight loss while even lesser injuries may reduce eyesight. Providing sufficient eye protection for your workers is essential and it is also a good idea to have spares in case of breakages or to protect visitors to the premises. As a leading supplier of workplace safety equipment, you can be sure the protective glasses from DENIOS UK are of a high standard and comply with the relevant EN166 legislation.
Make sure everyone knows when to wear safety goggles by displaying prominent warning signs and inspect the glasses regularly for any signs of wear and tear which may reduce their efficiency. Because no matter how effective the safety equipment, accidents can still happen, so ensure that emergency first aid is easily available by installing eye wash stations and having eye wash bottles easily available.
