When working with lasers, user safety is of the highest concern, and even though control measures are in place the operator wears laser safety eyewear. Controlled access and area cordoning (with products such as our range of laser curtains and barriers) is the correct way to protect users from a laser source, however there is always the possibility that the engineering controls and administrative procedures will fail.
As a hypothetical example - a new employee has ventured into the laser-controlled area of a factory and is unaware that the laser is active. If this employee were to walk into a room with an active laser there is the possibility of eye-damaging exposure! This is where laser safety eyewear provides its value for money.
Like a fire extinguisher, it is designed to be a last-resort protection option for the user. As your employee is wearing the correct eyewear their eyes are protected and they can safely leave the area for further safety training.
When using a laser system it is always good to have a few pairs of suitable laser safety eyewear available. LASER COMPONENTS has a wide range of protective filters and can suggest suitable options from your submitted laser specifications. We also have a large selection of comfortable and non-restrictive frames available too, allowing you to choose which frame style you prefer.
