Excerpt from "Assessing hazards to select eye and respiratory protection."
In the first instance, impact resistant eye protection is appropriate and in the second instance, a shaded face shield is the right choice. The same holds true for the selection of a respirator. The employer is required to assess the exposures in the workplace (by way of personnel air sampling, or mathematical modeling, or some other means) to determine what hazardous exposure exist, what the exposures levels are, and what level of respiratory protection is necessary.
