Eye Protection
Students, teachers and visitors must wear appropriate industrial-quality eye protection equipment at all times while participating in or observing any course of instruction involving exposure to any of the following: molten metal or other molten materials; milling, sawing, turning, shaping, cutting, grinding, or stamping on any solid materials; heat treatment, tempering or kiln-firing of any metal or other materials; gas or electric arc welding or other forms of welding process; repair or servicing of any vehicle; caustic or explosive materials; finishing materials and solvents; injurious radiations or other hazards.

Each school will provide eye protection equipment to every student, teacher and visitor.

Each school will keep eye protection equipment that is clean, in good repair, durable, capable of being disinfected and that meets the requirements specified in “Practice for Occupational and Educational Eye and Face Protection,” American National Standards Institute, Z87.1- 1968. Use of equipment with structural or optical defects is prohibited.

Persons whose vision requires the use of eyeglasses will be provided goggles that can be worn over corrective spectacles without disturbing the adjustment of the eyeglasses.

Each school that uses lasers in classrooms and laboratories will register them with the Georgia Department of Human Resources and adhere to the Rules and Regulations for Laser Radiation, Chapter 290-5-27. Georgia Department of Human Resources.
