Eye Protection (CHEM)

Eye Protection. Eye protection includes safety glasses, splash-proof chemical goggles, impact goggles, Ultraviolet (UV) goggles, welding helmets with special lenses, etc. Face shields are not eye protection, they are face protection. Eye protection must be worn beneath face shields. Selection of the right eye protection depends on the hazard and the risk. In general, for all HM, use chemical splash goggles and, in some cases, face shields to protect the eyes from contact with liquid and powdered chemicals. Detailed guidance regarding sight conservation and eye protection selection is given in OPNAVINST 5100.19 series Chapter B5.
Eye protection, protects eyes.
