The OSHA 1910.133 is an Occupational Safety and Health Standard which describes eye and face protection requirements for employees under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration [OSHA].
The standard requires employers to ensure that all affected employees are provided with, and use, eye and / or face protection when exposed to certain hazards. These include but are not limited to:
- Acids or Caustic Liquids
- Chemical Gases or Vapors
- Flying Particles
- Liquid Chemicals
- Molten Metal
- Potentially Injurious Light Radiation
Employers are also required to make certain their employees use side protection, such as detachable side protectors, if and when flying objects are a hazard. Furthermore, eye protection should incorporate prescription lenses into its design where necessary, and all eye and face PPE should be marked distinctly with manufacturer identification.
