Description / Abstract:

This Standard sets out requirements and recommended practices for the protection of the eyes and faces of persons against hazards such as flying particles, dust, splashing materials and molten metals, harmful gases, vapours and aerosols, solar radiation and high-intensity radiation generated during operations such as welding and furnace work.

This Standard addresses hazards arising from normal occupational processes. It does not address hazards resulting from machinery malfunction and misuse. This Standard does not include practices for the protection of eyes and faces in sport. Some of these are covered in AS/NZS 4499.3 (cricket), AS 1609 (automotive sports) and AS/NZS 4066 (racquet sports).

The selection of eye protectors appropriate to the use of particular lasers is covered. It does not cover the additional hazards associated with, and the necessary precautions for laser use (which are covered in AS/NZS IEC 60825 and AS 2397) nor those arising from work with ionizing radiation.

NOTE: Documents that contain additional information about eye protectors and their selection are listed in the Bibliography at the end of this document.
