Wood Dust

Sawing and planing wood generates a lot of dust, which can cause severe eye injuries.  Lined eyewear protects carpenters’ eyes from wood dust irritation.  Furthermore, the small wood dust particulates can easily work their way underneath PPE, so make sure your gloves and coveralls are close-fitting.  Featherweight gloves are a great place to start!
