Abstract
The report describes tests of flexible fitting safety goggles advertised as meeting the requirements of the ANSI Z87.1 Standard. An attempt is made to include all models currently available in the United States having clear lenses and direct ventilation. A general description of each test is included along with a discussion of the test results. Fifty individual models are tested. Several variations from the requirements of the standard are noted. The majority of these variations are minor in that they do not relate directly to the safety of the user. There are no failures in the more important impact and penetration tests. A potential hazard associated with eye exposure is discussed.
