Eye and Face Protection: Global Market Trends
Industrial workers around the world are subjected to hazards that can cause temporary or permanent injuries to their vital body parts, particularly to the face and eyes. Governments and industrial regulatory bodies have set mandates for the use of proper protection equipment in industrial settings. Goggles and face shields are being widely used as eye and face protection equipment. Companies and employers are being trained to promote the use of such equipment among their workforce. Growing complexities in the manufacturing sector are exposing workers to more risks of getting injured by toxic substances, sharp metal surfaces and volatile gases.
However, the standardization of guidelines on the production and use of eye and face protection continues to be inharmonious. In developed countries such as the US, national safety standards and state-wise occupational health regulations are conflicting. Manufacturers of eye and face protection equipment are being challenge to meet these diverse standards. The global eye and face protection market is also witnessing a growing implementation of awareness programs. To ensure maximum worker protection, eye and face protection programs are being commissioned, wherein in the employers are provided information on how proper use of eye and face protection equipment among their workforce can help them reduce business expenses accounted by indirect costs of treating the injured workers.
