If your employees are at risk of chemical splashes or spills but don’t need complete protection against fumes, indirect-vented goggles are an excellent safety eyewear option. These anti-fog goggles have several vents around the frames that allow air to flow in and out. Because these vents are covered, they protect from splashing, but they can’t keep toxic fumes out.
Indirect vented goggles are ideal for employees that need long-term eye protection. Compared to non-vented goggles, they’re much more comfortable to wear. However, if vapor exposure is a concern, it’s important for safety goggles to be vent-free.
