Eye protection and hand protection are essential pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) that every worker should wear on the job site. In any work environment, there are a variety of hazards that can cause serious injury to the eyes and hands. By wearing the appropriate PPE, you can significantly reduce your risk of injury and stay safe on the job.

The importance of wearing safety glasses on the job site cannot be overstated. Eye injuries can be caused by a variety of hazards, such as flying debris, chemicals, and dust. These injuries can range from minor scratches to severe trauma, including permanent vision loss. Glasses, like our ORR XP series, provide a barrier between the eyes and these hazards, protecting them from harm. In addition, safety glasses with UV protection can also protect against long-term damage from prolonged exposure to the sun.

Hand protection is equally important on the job site. The hands are often the most exposed part of the body and can be easily injured by sharp or heavy objects, chemicals, and machinery. Hand injuries can be severe, causing cuts, burns, and even amputations. Using the right hand protection, such as our Ironclad gloves, can substantially minimize your chances of getting injured and help ensure your safety while working.

In addition to protecting you from injury, wearing safety glasses and hand protection can also have other benefits. For example, when you feel safe and protected, you are more likely to be productive and efficient on the job. This can lead to increased job satisfaction and a better overall work environment.
