Abstract

A safety system shield which protects the head, facial, throat, and upper thorax regions of the body from exposure to biological, chemical, and physical matter that may take the form of solids, liquids, or aerosols, and includes a thin flexible shield which is curved, and transparent. It is shaped to rest on the anterior shoulder, and thorax region of the body, thereby allowing the head to look in any direction. This relieves the wearer's head of the weight of the shield while affording maximum protection. The safety shield system is ultra-light weight thus, reduces wearer's fatigue, and eliminates headaches, resulting in the enhancement of safety, and the reduction of accidents. The safety shield is flexible allowing it to conform to the size, and curvature of the wearer.
