Quality Safety Goggles
Site Safety Goggles, For Use With Power Tools
Safety goggles make up a critical part of our eye protection range; their larger size offers more protection and load distribution than safety glasses, making them suitable for use with power tools. Protective eye goggles also provide excellent protection for your eyes against liquid droplets, which could otherwise go over or under standard safety spectacles.
With their enclosed nature, eye protection goggles are also better than safety glasses for environments with lots of dust. The tight seal formed between the goggles and your face ensures that dust particles, for the most part, are kept out. If dealing with extremely fine irritating dust or gasses, you can get an unvented pair of work goggles to keep your eyes safe.
All eye goggles we supply have class 1 quality optics, making them suitable for all-day use without worrying about eye strain. This optical clarity also makes our goggles ideal for use in environments where detail is key, such as in laboratories where measurements need to be pinpoint and accurate.
When To Wear Eye Safety Goggles
PPE Safety goggles should be your go-to protective measure against eye injuries whenever you pick up a power tool or deal with fine dust, chemicals or gasses.
They are best for applications where:
- You are using hand tools that produce flying debris.
- You are dealing with fine dust.
- You are dealing with gasses that would go behind a visor or spectacles.
- You are at risk of droplets of liquid hitting your eyes.
Below we have put together some of the features and details of where you may want to consider different levels of face protection. Remember, there are instances where you may need to wear goggles and a face shield at the same time; For example, you are at risk of high-speed impacts from a tool that is creating lots of fine dust (you would also want to consider some RPE, too at this point).

Key Features of Work & Our Lab Safety Goggles
Class 1 Optical Clarity
Our range of safety goggles is suitable for wearing all day long. Class 1 optical clarity means no distortion of vision that can cause eye strain.
Vented Or Unvented
Choose between vented and unvented goggles. Vented goggles are unsuitable for fine dust or gas; for these applications, you should choose a non-vented goggle.
Liquid Droplet Protection
All our safety goggles are ideal for catching small amounts of water in the form of droplets; anything more than this, you will want to consider a face shield which can offer proper protection from chemical splashes.
Any goggles marked as being N rated have anti-fog properties. This property makes them ideal for use in cold environments where fogging and misting can cause issues.
Goggles in our range are rated B for impact resistance, ensuring they can withstand “medium energy impacts up to 120m/s”.
Look out for goggles with a 2-, 2C- or 5- marking on the lens, this means they offer UV protection for your eyes. Most goggles made with polycarbonate have this protection built in unless meant for medical applications.
K Rated scratch-resistant goggles offer protection against scratches caused by fine particles. This helps protect the lens, keeping them clearer for longer, allowing you to see what you are doing and extending the working life of the goggles.
Prescription Eyewear Compatability
If you wear prescription glasses, choose goggles compatible with prescription eyewear.
If you need to wear a helmet with your goggles, choose a low-profile design such as those of the EVO range.
