This guide provides information on eye safety and aids educators, administrators, and supervisors in the development and implementation of eye safety programs. The American National Standards Institute (AMSI) requirements for both street and safety glasses; essential eyewear for safety in hazardous areas; the National Society to Prevent Blindness's official stance on the use of contact lenses in the work place; the hazards of using photogray or phototropic lenses indoors; the fitting and maintenance of eye protective devices; and the use of eye hazard warnings are presented. This document designates the proper eye protection devices for various operations such as foundry work, welding, construction, commercial art, and ceramics. It introduces an incentive program called the Wise Owl Club of America designed to reduce eye injury and loss of sight by encouraging the use of proper eye protection. (MCO)
