Abstract
Eyecup safety goggles were evaluated to determine their suitability for use by United States workers. Twenty two models were given lens and frame impact tests. The overall performance of all the models was consistently poor. Thirty-one percent of the models tested failed the frame impact test, and 44 percent failed the lens impact test. The researchers conclude that the quality of eyecup goggles available to the workforce of the United States has not improved significantly since serious defects were first identified in a 1977 NIOSH survey. They recommend that companies who cannot evaluate impact resistance request a written statement of lens quality from the manufacturer.
