Hard hats have an “expiration date” too!
It may be easy to know when to replace your work boots, or even easier to know when your workwear needs to be thrown out. The same is true for your eye protection. Simply take a good look at these items—if you can spot holes, if the seams are falling apart, if the soles are worn, or if the glass is scratched, it’s time to get rid of them. It’s even easier when an expiration date is printed on your work gear!
