According to Occupational Health and Safety Online:
"Fogging is the #1 Vision Related Barrier to wearing safety glasses"
The impact of eye injuries costs companies nearly $4 Billion in lost wages and productivity in a given year.
There are 2,000 eye injuries on average each year, and 10-20% lead to temporary or permanent vision loss.
OSHA looks at this...What do they say on the matter?
Provide ways to prevent fogging. "Make anti-fog treatments readily available. Keep a visible supply where workers don and doff their gear, as well as in break and rest areas"
Technical: (OSHA 1910.132(d)(2)) of the workplace. If hazard conditions indicate, personal protective equipment for the eyes should be provided. In addition, OSHA directs that the safety equipment be in "sanitary and reliable condition" (1910.132(a)). In certain workplaces, "reliable condition" may include a method for preventing fogging of safety glasses, safety goggles and faceshields. Furthermore, OSHA requires training for employees on required safety equipment (1910.132(f)(1)), which may need to include a discussion of eyewear fogging hazards.
An ounce of prevention...
