may occur to the eye and face when workers are exposed to high temperatures, splashes of molten metal, or
hot sparks. Protect your eyes from heat when workplace operations
involve pouring, casting, hot dipping, furnace operations, and other
similar activities. Burns to eye and face tissue are the main concern when
working with heat hazards.
Working with heat hazards requires eye protection such as goggles or safety spectacles with
special-purpose lenses and side shields. However, many heat
hazard exposures require the use of a face shield in addition
to safety spectacles or goggles. When selecting PPE, consider
the source and intensity of the heat and the type of splashes that
may occur in the workplace.
