Personal Protection for Eyes and Ears

Eye Protection

Despite the advances made in eye surgery in recent times, it is probably still as true as when my mother used to tell me, that the gift of sight is our most precious.  Why, then, do we act in a most cavalier fashion when it comes to taking care of our sight whilst working?  Whether you are engaged in turning, sanding, sharpening - or even in knocking in nails, your sight is at risk.  The products on this page are economical protection against these risks, from reputable manufacturers  (would you buy your parachute at a flea market?), of a range of types to suit various jobs which you may undertake - and of course to match personal preference.  Some are designed to fit over most types of prescription glasses too so there really is no excuse for going into the workplace unptotected.

Auditory (Ear) Protection

If you need to wear protection all day long, then the solution is classic ear defenders such as the Silverine Economy Ear Muffs listed below (see photo, right). Mounted on a sturdy headband and featuring an acoustic foam fill, these defenders will serve you day after day without breaking the bank: what's the price of good hearing? These defenders will last you for years if treated sensibly, giving protection against nuisance noise.
