This conference will provide you with everything that you are used to enjoying at the winter conference including top notch safety and safety leadership sessions, awards breakfast, industry related vendors, and a buffet lunch!!

Eye & Face Protection

General Information
Protecting the eyes and face from hazards is extremely important considering all of the organs and soft tissue in the area. For example, a projectile to the eye not only damages the eye, but potentially the ligaments and muscles that move it, and in some cases the brain. Furthermore, lacerations to the face can damage muscle tissue and leave life-long scars.
Serious injuries can occur very quickly and it is important to choose the proper Personal Protective Equipment for the task. Always make sure PPE is properly rated for the job, fits properly, and doesn’t obstruct view.
Causes of Eye and Face injuries
  • Splashes from acids, cleaning solutions and other harmful liquid chemicals
  • Flying debris, chips and dust from grinding and windy conditions
  • Flying projectiles from objects colliding, falling or being dumped
  • Loose straps, cords or banding that breaks or snaps under extreme tension
  • Extreme heat and light from exposed flames, welding or torches
Types of Personal Protective Equipment
  • Safety goggles: Enclose the whole area around the eyes to help prevent debris when sanding or blowing dirt and debris
  • Safety glasses and side shields: Provide some protection against airborne particles and projectiles and are made of impact resistant material
  • Weld masks, dark shields and torch glasses can help protect the eyes and face from flash burns and over-exposure to light
  • Grinding shields can help protect from grinding debris, flying projectiles and chemical splashes
