Welding is well-known for being a job with many dangerous hazards. Every single day of work, a welder is exposed to hazardous conditions such as extreme heat, industrial chemicals, and light so bright it can damage your vision if you lack the proper safety equipment. Despite numerous health and safety standards, welders are frequently injured on the job. To minimize personal injuries or to negate them completely, a welder needs to be armored with personal safety equipment. One of the most common types of injuries sustained while working are eye injuries (of many varieties), and a pair of ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Z87 certified safety glasses can protect your eyes from the ravages of light exposure while welding.
