The public comment period for the proposed revision of ANSI/ISEA Z87.1, American National Standard for Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices is now open – but only until September 30, 2019.

This widely-recognized standard, codified by OSHA and other authorities having jurisdiction, establishes criteria related to the performance requirements, testing, and permanent marking protectors to minimize the occurrence and severity or prevention of injuries to the eye and face from such hazards as impact, non-ionizing radiation and liquid splash exposures in occupational and educational environments including, but not limited to, machinery operations, material welding and cutting, chemical handling, and assembly operations. 

Public review comments should be submitted to Cristine Fargo, Vice President, Operations for the International Safety Equipment Association.
