When your PPE isn’t performing properly, you notice. Discomfort, dirty lenses, and fogging can be difficult to work in during long hours on the job, and worse – improper fit or maintenance can put you at risk of injury. The number one reason for scratched lenses and inadequate anti-fog protection is improper cleaning, with the second being poor handling and storage.
To help ensure your HexArmor® safety goggles are comfortable, high-performing, and long-lasting for as long as possible, initiating proper fit, care, and cleaning makes all the difference.
Step 1: Place the safety goggle on the face with one hand
Step 2: While holding safety goggle in place, bring the headband over and to the back of the head with the other hand
Step 3: Adjust headband to your head size
Step 4: Check the seal for gaps by running your index fingers around the seal. Pay close attention to the nose area. Additionally, if your goggles are able to accommodate prescription glasses underneath, check that the side arms don’t break the seal.
