What’s in the Eye and Face Protection Training Course?

Our Eye & Face Protection training course is regulation-aligned, and our online version fulfills classroom training requirements. Each class contains sections on common hazards, safe operations, appropriate PPE and more.

During this training, we will be taking a look at potential hazards on the job site that can affect your eyes and face. We will also discuss safe operations that will protect your eyes and face from serious harm, including PPE. Lastly, we will present a few case studies to illustrate what can happen when basic safety practices are ignored.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA. Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following laws and regulations:

    Why Do I Need Eye and Face Protection Safety Training?

    In line with regulations, anyone who operates heavy equipment must receive training prior to operating the machine on their own. Requirements for refresher training and other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific OSHA training requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

    When it comes to refresher health and safety training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why should I wear safety glasses?

    arrow icon

    Safety glasses are your best defense against potential hazards on the worksite. You can walk with a fake leg, but you can’t see with a fake eye.

    Do you have to wear safety glasses if you wear glasses?

    arrow icon

    Yes. Unless your safety glasses have been specifically designed to act as protective wear, you must wear safety glasses that fit over your regular prescription glasses.

    How do you wear safety glasses?

    arrow icon

    Safety glasses shouldn’t be treated with a “one size fits all” mindset. They should sit close to your face without hitting your eyelashes. You shouldn’t be able to fit a pencil in the gap around the frames (that’s about 6-8 mm). The lenses should cover your eyebrows and any surrounding soft tissue. Finally, they shouldn’t pinch, and they should stay in place when you move your head.

    How effective are safety glasses?

    arrow icon

    Standard safety glasses are designed to resist animpact of up to 150 feet per second. That’s about 102 miles per hour!
