Yep,I work at PPG Industries' Works #4 glass plant,the largest flat glass facility in the world. We have to wear safety glasses,ear protection,steel-toed boots,etc on our shifts. The boots and safety glasses were always worn too when mowing or weed-eating the grass. I've got both clear and tinted safety glasses at home & work. Even have a pair of bifocal ones with reading glass on the bottom.PYRO_BUD said:My 2 cents i go to the local lumber yard and get a pair of dark tint safety glasses usually like $6.00. NOTHING protects better than a Z87.1 pair of glasses, I don't care the brand.
I find one that fits and get a few pairs i can sit on them, drop them, but have NEVER broken a pair. You can get all the brand names you want but if it is rated and fits good that is all you need.
Also,I use their ear plugs on the bikes & trikes,as well as at the gun range when we're shooting automatic weapons & other stuff. I hate wind blast when riding. Just wish I would've taken better care of my ears when I was younger. Once you lose your hearing,you can never get it back.
