When Should You Wear Safety Glasses?
Safety glasses are a vital component of personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical professionals, especially those in dynamic and unpredictable environments. These specialized glasses are designed to provide eye protection for paramedics and healthcare workers in various medical settings.
Emergency Medical Services (EMS): In the field of emergency medical services, paramedics often find themselves responding to a wide range of emergencies. These professionals must protect their eyes when responding to situations where risks to eye safety can be uncertain.
To mitigate the risk of cross-contamination, wearing appropriate eye protection is as important as a proper face mask.
Healthcare Facilities: In healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, clinics, and laboratories, medical staff are exposed to potential hazards and contaminants regularly. Whether handling chemical substances, dealing with infectious materials, or performing delicate medical procedures, the risk to their eyes is ever-present. In these settings, wearing medical-grade eye protection is a fundamental safety measure.
When Should You Use Eyewash?
Eyewash is indispensable in medical settings, where immediate relief and treatment of eye irritants or contaminants are essential. Medical-grade eyewash solutions help maintain the safety of both patients and healthcare professionals. You should use an eyewash solution in the following situations:
Chemical Exposure: Accidental splashes or spills can occur in medical environments where hazardous chemicals or substances are handled. Medical-grade eyewash solution should be used immediately to rinse the eyes.
Emergency Situations: In some cases, patients may have substances or irritants in their eyes. Having access to eyewash stations is essential to prevent further injury or discomfort.
Your vision is invaluable. At Sands Canada, we’re dedicated to helping you stay safe in the field so you can better serve those around you with peace of mind.
