Several Types of Protective Equipment Are Made

Available to Safeguard the Eyes of Lago Employees
While it is the most important Heavy Impact Goggles Protection against Vapors

ing, scent, sight, speech), sight
is also the one that is most vul-
nerable of all.
It is also the one called upon
to help protect all the other four,
but is it the one that is most ex-
posed to all kinds of environ-
mental situations and influences.
It is also the one that is apt to
get perhaps too close to harm-
ful objects while it is unprotect-
ed. The eyes are protected only
by the eyelids, consisting of
flesh and a membranous tissue.
Although man is gifted with
two eyes, both may be simul-
taneously hurt by impact from
objects, the rays of injurious
light (the sun or arc welding)
and the spray of liquids.
For industrial use, where
these harmful conditions could
not have been designed out of
the system, safety engineers
have developed a number of
impact breakers or goggles that
have saved the eyes of millions.
For safeguarding the eyes of
its employees, Lago has more
than a half dozen different types
of safety goggles, as the job
may require. The Central Tool
Room, at all times, has the fol-
lowing eye protective equipment
on hand:

for protection against heavy im-
pact where relatively large ob-
jects could fly around while
chipping, cutting, grinding, or
when drilling or breaking con-
Moderate Impact Goggles
These are spectacle type gog-
gles with side shields. They
provide protection against the
impact of flying objects while
performing moderately heavy or
light work such as machining or
sealing, where the object may
come from the front or side.
Moderate Impact Goggles, with-
out Side Shield
These are spectacle type gog-
gles without side shields for use
where there is relatively little
hazard that objects may hit the
worker, except from directly in
Protection against Liquid
For protecting employees'
eyes against liquid splashes,
the company provides rubber
mask goggles. They offer pro-
tection against splashes of in-
jurious liquids, such as chem-
icals and oils. They also afford
some protection against dust as
well as moderate and light-im-
pact hazards.

For these types of hazards,
rubber mask goggles without
ventilators offer protection
against vapors and gases where
no respiratory protection is ne-
cessary. They also give positive
protection against dust as well
as moderate and light impact
Protection against Welding
Flashes and Sparks
To protect welders against
flashes when performing acety-
lene burning and arc-welding
jobs, there is a specially shiel-
ded goggle with a special lens
which protects the eyes against
flashes, sparks or hot welding
chips. Electric welding hoods
with special lenses are also
available for welders and their
Special Coverall Goggles
These are supplied for use
for employees who wear pres-
cription glasses. They fit over
ordinary glasses and may be
fitted with different lenses to
provide protection against re-
flected welding rays and glare.
Shields for Additional Protection
For work on some machines
or in field work, a plastic shield
should also be used as additio-

for prescription glasses, and af-
ter a review and approval of his
eligibility by the division super-
intendent and the Safety Sec-
tion, is entitled to a pair of
prescription glasses with safety
lenses at company expense.
Although eye injuries can be
caused in so many different
ways, Lago provides its employ-
ees with eye protection to pre-
vent nearly all eye Injuries, pro-

As with any protective equip-
ment, the wearer must check
first if the goggle Is in good

One thing to remember is that
goggles can be replaced, but
your eyes can never be replaced
by identical ones.
