It is already official that any eye protection wear must be certified. The fulfilment of EN 166:2001 EYE PROTECTION EUROPEAN STANDARD is demanded from products distributed in UK. It surely won’t take long when all of the countries will regulate this part of the market. It is exactly as we informed earlier. This is the end of Wild West for face shields.
The time for certified PET-G eye protection film begins. It had to happen reather sooner than later. Considering the scale on which these items are used nowadays. Leaving this as free-for-all was wise at first. The demand was to equip all as fast as possible. However, the time passes by. The situation stabilizes and people return to work under new safety rules. It is not hard to imagine how harmful and costful could be leaving it as is.
Lets not forget that we are talking here about optical wear in fact. Therefore, all personal eye protection shields should be treated just as any pair of glasses. Everyone should know what kind of material protects his face. Especially, if we expect from people to work in these things for 8 or more hours per day.
