Eye & Face Protection

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910.133, 1915.153, 1926.102

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online training course covers important eye and face safety topics to decrease the amount of preventable workplace injuries. It presents an overview of OSHA's eye and face protection requirements, other applicable standards, and how to use different types of personal protective equipment properly. The course covers employer and employee responsibilities, types of injuries, and best practices for injury prevention.

Work-related eye and facial injuries happen every day, resulting in significant financial losses due to lost production time, medical expenses, and workers' compensation claims. These injuries are often the result of workers not wearing the appropriate eye and face protection. Other on-the-job accidents are attributed to wearing the wrong kind of protective equipment for the task at hand.

This course is for:
This eye and face protection training online course is designed for anyone who works in areas where eye and/or face personal protective equipment is required. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for eye and face protection training.

Case Study: A welder who had not worked in quite a while was given a job to arc-weld fixtures on a ship. He had previously stored his welding PPE in a gang box. He found his welding hood at the bottom of the box, briefly inspected it, and began work. That night he began experiencing eye pain, which grew in intensity. Upon seeking medical treatment, he was diagnosed with welder's flash, caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation that penetrated a small crack in the old hood.

Key Takeaways: Employees should always inspect PPE before beginning work. By holding the hood up to the light, it is possible to see small cracks. PPE with cracks or wear should be immediately replaced.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 addresses general industry standards, while Part 1926 is designated for construction industry standards. This course covers the standards applicable to both.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as chemical, environmental, radiological, or mechanical irritants and hazards.

To ensure compliance with eye/face protection, safety training must be conducted whenever the employer has reason to believe that any affected employee who has already been trained does not have the understanding and skill required to work safely, per 29 CFR 1910.132(f). Circumstances requiring retraining include, but are not limited to, changes in the workplace or types of PPE, as well as inadequacies in an affected employee's knowledge or use of assigned PPE are observed. This face and eye protection safety training meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
