Construction is a massive and dangerous industry. Injuries are prominent on the construction site. It is estimated by OSHA that only 34% of building construction workers wear safety glasses, consequently 1,000 eye injuries occur daily. Not wearing the proper protective eyewear or wearing PPE incorrectly are the main reasons for these injuries. Safety eyewear for construction workers must fit securely, be multi-functional and ready for sudden changes in weather and worksite conditions.
Negligence and misuse of PPE can have dangerous consequences. Construction workers face flying debris, wood, dirt, metal, nails, sparks, varying weather patterns and exposure to UV rays. ANSI-rated glasses, protect workers from high-mass and high-velocity impacts and offer direct protection from any number of elements being thrown at construction workers daily. The potential for an accident or injury is enormous.
The selection of PPE for construction workers should be a vigorous one. Frames
