Welcome to the 3M Protective Eyewear Product Selector
This protective eyewear selection tool should only be used as a guide. Prior to using this tool, per 29 CFR 1910.132, the employer must assess the workplace and determine if hazards that necessitate the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) including eye and face protection, are present, or are likely to be present, before assigning PPE to workers. The types of eye and face hazards identified in the hazard assessment will be the input into this selector tool. The recommended products may not be the complete protection for the hazard (for example, some hazards require both primary eye protection and secondary face protection). Failure to properly identify hazards may result in improper eye and face protection selection, possibly resulting in injury to the eyes or face.
Outside the U.S., consult the authority having jurisdiction in your country for eyewear selection requirements.
