Face Protection is particularly focused on protection of eyes and face during different types of work. A good example is working with electricity because there is a risk of an electric arc that may occur with a short circuit. That is precisely why good protection, such as a helmet, it is so important.
Electricians do different work, but they have the same risks as welders risk: injury to
the face and especially the eyes. Good protection is essential to be able to work.
