White Paper: The field of view of safety goggles

Various industries and organisations, such as the European and US agencies ‘Occupational Safety and Health Administration’ (OSHA), foster a safe and healthy occupational environment. One of the instruments to achieve this goal is the promotion of personal protective equipment (PPE). While recognising the importance of a safe working environment, compliance with PPE rules and guidelines requires continuous attention and efforts from all stakeholders.

Companies need to create an appropriate framework, demonstrate leadership, develop procedures and provide training. The end-user of the PPE must, among other things, be sufficiently motivated, adopt proper habits and have an anticipatory and proactive attitude.

Finally, the PPE manufacturer must not only develop products that protect according to well-defined specifications but also consider ergonomics and comfort in their design and the ease with which a PPE can be maintained or replaced. In this paper, we discuss a PPE property, more specifically the ‘field of view’ (FOV) of safety goggles.
