SUPPLIES - PPE Face Shield
A face shield is classified
as PPE that provides barrier protection to the facial area and related mucous membranes (eyes, nose, lips). A face shield offers a
number of potential advantages, as well as some disadvantages, compared with other forms of face/eye protection used in healthcare
and related fields. The millions of potential users of face shields include healthcare workers, dental providers, veterinary care personnel,
manufacturing operators, laboratory workers, pre-hospital emergency medical providers, police, firefighters, and custodial staff.
OSHA's Blood borne Pathogens standard (1910:1030 sub part (d)(3)(i)) states: "Masks in combination with eye protection devices, such
as goggles or glasses with solid side shields, shall be worn whenever splashes, spray, spatter, or droplets of blood or other potentially
infectious materials may be generated and eye, nose, or mouth contamination can be reasonably anticipated.
