The Eye Protection Training course is broken down into 4 sections.
1) Risks and Hazards
We start by considering the different ways you can cause damage to your eyes. From chemical splashes to dust and debris – we take a look at where you are most at risk from each of these hazards and how they can cause an injury.
2) Protecting Yourself
Here, we introduce you to the different kinds of eye protection available and see how they protect you from the various hazards you might face. Then we discuss lenses and filters, to see which ones are right for you.
3) Accidents Happen
No matter how well you protect yourself, sometimes things still go wrong. This section offers practical, first-aid advice for when accidents happen. It also looks at the long term damage that can affect your eyesight and how you can help prevent this.
4) Identifying Risk and Managing Safety
Before you can deal with risks, you have to first find them all. This final section covers risk assessments, which are used by employers to identify risks to employees and ends by considering your responsibilities towards eye safety.

Legislation relating to Eye Protection
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.
Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required for a lot of jobs. It is to reduce the chance of any accidents or incidents that occur to either you, or somebody else. It is the employers responsibility to provide the PPE, free of charge. However, it is down to the employee to know when they have to use it, and how they can use it.
Employers have duties concerning the provision and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) at work. PPE is equipment that will protect the user against health or safety risks at work.
Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HASAWA) is the legislation that covers how safe a workplace is and sets the standards of what safety precautions a workplace should put in place. This is to ensure minimal risk, and to make sure there are as little accidents happening as possible.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (also referred to as HSWA, the HSW Act, the 1974 Act or HASAWA) is the primary piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in Great Britain. The Health and Safety Executive, with local authorities (and other enforcing authorities) is responsible for enforcing the Act and a number of other Acts and Statutory Instruments relevant to the working environment.
