Per OSHA, face shields are not intended to protect from impacts, just chips, dust, and the like. Safety glasses or goggles are primary protection for your eyes.

I imagine something intended to protect your face from impacts would look more like catchers mask.

The face shield you referenced would probably help if a small cut off got airborne and hit your face, but wouldn’t do a lot of good if it were a good size piece moving at high speed. Having said that, I don’t see it would be likely to hurt wearing it.
