I do, on the contacts but no glasses. The reason I don't wear the safety glasses really is stupidity. I need to start but I wear the work tunes style head sets and the glasses going behind them does not work for me. I've been meaning to get some glasses with a strap!

There is a few times I let it slide during landscaping installs, but over-all safety glasses are a must regardless of what we are doing.

I've sent guys home if they show up without their safety glasses (that we provide) and their isn't another pair in the trucks.

If I had crew they would all wear them or be de-crewed

I wear regular glasses and hate the idea of using contacts or I'd switch to safety glasses sooner.

I've got the LG Tone bluetooth stereo headset. I know it's not "hearing protection" but it is better than nothing.

I get stuff thrown toward my eyes all the time. I should take a pic and see if all the nicks and scratches would show up on the glasses. Dust also really bothers my contacts, I keep a bottle of contact lube in my pocket all the time too.

I've wore contacts since I was in 9th grade... I've got "coke bottle" glasses, so there's no way I'd be caught dead in mine!

As with eyeglasses, sunglasses are to be made impact resistant.

I wear my sun glasses as safety glasses all the time.

Stihl FS90 with guard removed and safety glasses always. None of my equipment runs unless safety glasses are worn period. Had to have things removed from my eyes on a couple occasions ( not relating to this topic ) and not a fun picnic to say the least.
