How can I prevent eye injuries when working on the car?

Eye protection! Wear safety glasses, goggles, or face shields when you hammer nails or metal, work with power tools or chemicals, or do any activity that might cause a burn to your eyes. If you work with hazardous chemicals that could splash into your eyes, know how to flush chemicals out, and know the location of the nearest shower or sink. Wear a mask or goggles designed for welding if needed.
