The present invention provides a method of manufacturing an apparatus for shielding fluids from the eyes and face of an attendant. The apparatus and method utilize a plastic visor and face mask that are connected. The visor and face mask are secured to the head of the wearer by tie strips that are attached to the mask and visor so as to hold the shield near the wearer's face. The visor has cushioning strips attached to distribute the pressure of the visor over a large area of the wearer's forehead and has side extensions that protect the eyes from fluids propelled toward the wearer from a side angle relative to wearer's face.
