I’m coming across an increasing number of people who think safety eyewear is required for work or organisations who specify it (seemingly arbitrarily). I’d like to check with members how common this is, and whether anybody has seen, or written, a risk assessment that has identified a need for safety eyewear and if so why.
My main concern is with regard to fibre sharps with fibre splicing work, but I’m happy to also hear about laser safety requirements for eyewear and/or other PPE.
