A word to the wise - protect your eyes. Your eyes are one of your biggest assets in everyday life, and if you work in a job where your eyes could be in danger, you should make sure to protect them with safety glasses and other protective gear. Whether you work with dangerous acids and other liquids or in jobs where particles could shoot up into your eyes, you need a good pair of safety glasses. Think of them as an inexpensive insurance policy on your eyes and eyesight. They should be part of your workwear.
