Finding the right personal protective equipment (PPE) can be a daunting and confusing task. We are here to help you find the right equipment for the right job. Today we look at our top picks when it comes to protective eyewear. Whether you are working with chemicals or you are dealing with saw dust, having the right protective goggles is often an oversight on many job sites. It is estimated that there are over 20,000 eye injuries every year in workplace across the United States.
Here is a look at our top three protective eyewear sets:
1. 3M Virtua CCS Protective Eyewear (Starting at $5.54)
This set offered by Virtua is going to be the best bang for your buck. It offers complete coverage of the eye while also keeping out airborne particles.
2. DEWALT DPG82-11 Concealer Clear Anti-Fog Dual Mold Safety Goggle (Starting at $11.62)
For a little more heavy duty option we recommend the DeWalt DPG82-11. Provides additional comfort and protection, but it is going to cost you a little extra. The lens are hard coated to prevent scratching and the adjustable strap gives you the perfect fit.
3. 3M Virtua Protective Eyewear (Starting at $2.14)
Are you looking for a cheap option or looking to buy for a large workforce? The base 3m standard from Virtua will provide you with adequate protection for most jobs and projects.
Our top three protective eyewear sets are our suggestions for general workplace safety. Some jobs require equipment that offer additional protections (i.e. Welding). Consult with your safety officer or contact OSHA
if you have additional questions about which protective eyewear you should be using on your job site.
