Eye protection should be worn when working in areas where there is the potential for injury to the eye from flying particles, chemicals, molten metal, bright lights, IR or UV radiation and other hazards. The Bureau of Labour Statistics (BLS) reports that nearly three out of every five workers injured were not wearing eye protection at the time of the accident. About 40% of injured workers were wearing the wrong type of eye protection.
