How do I prevent oil from getting on my glasses when I fry sausages?

I've tried cooking it on the eye farthest from me, and I still end up with oil on my glasses and likely my face too (which really isn't good for my skin). I would stop cooking them, but I'm not making them for me, I have to make them for someone else. And the smell of the food also sticks to my clothes. Any advice?

    Most dollar stores sell a mesh screen to cover your skillet when cooking sausage and such. This will control the grease spatter, but not the smell. Maybe if you used the screen and put on a smock while cooking?

    I cook sausages under the grill / broiler, so they tend not to spatter.

    Most food smells do cling to your clothes, even when wearing an apron, I'm afraid.

    Place a splatter screen on top of the cooking vessel.

    Try grilling them.

    Added, the sausages I mean, not your glasses.

    hat with a brim on it.  The grease is most likely from droplets in the air so the brim will prevent most of the grease from settling on your glasses. 

    There are also "splatter shields" that will prevent most of the splattering grease from betting everywhere. 

    If you have a fine mesh strainer you could invert that over the pan and that will act as a splatter shield. 

    Your other option would be cook the sausage in the oven or microwave rather than the stove top.

    Wear a hat with a brim. Also use a lid. Nothing you can do about the clothes except for a good exhaust fan.

    Use a wire mesh splatter guard.

    eg. https://www.oldrids.co.uk/large-28cm-wire-splatter...

    It rests on the pan while you are cooking and you can lift it enough to move things around when needed, without being sprayed with oil, but it still lets steam out sh things fry properly, unlike a solid lid.
