Click to Learn More Course synopsis.

OSHA requires employers to keep their employees safe while they are at work. To this end, employers must provide workers with personal protective equipment (PPE) designed to protect the eyes and face whenever possible against chemical, environmental, radiological, or mechanical irritants and hazards. OSHA spells out different types of PPE standards for various industries. Here, you will learn about the different types of PPE available for your eyes and face, as well as how to use and maintain them properly. You will also learn about the injuries workers can suffer to their eyes and face without PPE, and how to prevent and treat them.
