I’m just guessing, but I suspect the additional requirement for eye protection under may be due to the size of the face shield. Something can break it, and it would potentially have more and larger fragments. Also, it might be that being larger it is more prone to being shattered than the much smaller lenses of goggles or safety glasses.

Also, to reduce weight, I would expect the plastic to be thinner than typical safety glasses and goggles. Again, just speculation on my part. If they say it should be worn with safety glass, I’d take them at their word.

One thing is certain, it would reduce if not completely prevent injury. I’ve seen John’s photos, and you’re not wrong to be concerned about this.
