Most sunglasses touting an ANSI rating can be used interchangeably with those marketed as safety glasses.That's why the manufacturers go to the trouble of submitting them for rating purposes.

I have never worn any safety eyewear when flying or setting things up on the bench. BUT, this has got me thinking though. I have several safety glasses in my car and at home since I need to wear them when passing through certain sections of buildings at work. I must have accumalated 20 pairs, so no reason to be a little extra careful at least while spooling up in my workshop to test settings.

I have a full body chainmaille suit I wear, although it's a little heavy.

Just in case!
