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.
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.
