All safety equipment used in various working environments should comply with specific standards. This scientific paper is about research and analyses of the compulsory standards for eyeprotection in working environment. It includes methods for mechanical tests according to the standard further explained and virtual testing by using a numerical model. A physical reference model was used that complies with the aforementioned standard. The main purpose of this scientific paper is showing the behaviour of safety glasses during their mechanical test but in virtual environment. The standard EN166:2001- “Personal eye protection equipment” describes the test and the requirements that should be fulfilled for granting confirmation. The aim of this paper is the conduction of the mechanical test described in the standard EN166 by using virtual simulation, analyzing the results and suggesting possible modifications on the safety equipment.


Keywords –Finite element method; eye protection; safety glasses; EN166; virtual simulation.
