About Safety Glasses...

I was recently at a facility in which the employer did not require safety glasses because 'the machines are already guarded'...

My Thoughts
Although there are many regulations, and interpretations, most manufacturers and regulatory groups can agree that safety glasses should be worn under the following machine conditions...

1) Whenever a safety gate is opened, it is considered violated, and eye protection is required. This includes mold or die changes, machine maintenance, mold or die cleaning, clearing a stuck part, and semi-automatic operation.

2) Whenever polymer is purged from the barrel, high pressures and temperatures are being released. Both eye and face protection should be used in the form of a face shield.
