About This Item
This standard sets forth criteria related to the general requirements, testing, permanent marking(s), selection, care and use of protectors to minimize or prevent exposure to the wearer's eyes and/or face (mucocutaneous exposures, nose and mouth) caused by spray or spurt of blood, body fluids and/or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM).
This standard is NOT intended to address hazards related to preventing the transmission and acquisition of a specific pathogenic organism, rather it is intended to prevent exposure to the physical hazard (blood, body fluid, or OPIM) itself. This standard is also NOT intended to address the pathogenic transmission of an infectious agent by particles, dust, or droplet nuclei that are suspended in the air, and which may require other additional forms of protection.
