Safety glasses are essential to protect your eyes from optical radiation, impact, chemicals, heat, and dust.
If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to buying safety goggles, Grainger provides a detailed list of considerations that will help you to pick the safety goggles most suitable for your use. For example, anti-static coating on safety glasses, can help keep particulates and dust from being attracted to your lenses which is important if you’re working in dusty, dirty situations. An anti-fog coating helps prevent fog from forming on your lenses if you’re working in high-humidity environments or if you have a tendency to sweat heavily.
Grainger’s article also helps you to become familiar with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for glasses, including all the ways in which manufacturers must clearly mark the safety standards that glasses include. With over 1,900 different combinations of safety offerings that can be sorted by ANSI standard numbers, Grainger can be a really great resource to help you find the most appropriate safety goggles for HVAC training.
