    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets recommended practices for the protection of the eyes of persons at work against hazards such as flying particles, dust, splashing materials and molten metals, harmful gases, vapours and aerosols, high-intensity radiation generated during welding operations and furnace work. Guidance is given on the selection of eye protectors appropriate to the use of particular lasers. Additional guidance is provided for manufacturers and dispensers of prescription lenses on the requirements for production of prescription personal eye protectors.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out recommended practices for the protection of the eyes of persons at work, against hazards such as flying particles, dust, splashing materials and molten metals, harmful gases, vapours and aerosols, high-intensity radiation generated during welding operations and furnace work. Guidance is given on the selection of eye protectors appropriate to the use of particular lasers. Additional guidance is provided for manufacturers and dispensers of prescription lenses on the requirements for production of prescription personal eye protectors.This Standard addresses hazards arising from normal occupational processes. It does not address hazards resulting from machinery malfunction and misuse.It does not cover the hazards associated with, and the necessary precautions for, laser use (which are covered in AS 2211 and AS 2397) nor those arising from work with ionizing radiation. It also does not cover hazards in the workrooms of educational establishments which are covered in AS 1485.
