Keeping employees safe from harm is critical at any job site. Whether it includes workers who are sitting and staring at a computer screen all day, or out in the field and operating heavy machinery. To ensure safety remains a priority for companies, OSHA and regulatory bodies establish standards and regulations that must be met. Any non-compliance will result in hefty fines – or worse.
When it comes to eye protection, proper use of safety glasses and goggles can protect workers from unnecessary injuries in the workplace. And with an estimated 2,000 U.S. workers injured daily due to improper use of safety goggles, it’s important that businesses understand compliance risks.
Here are some of the ways safety glasses can help protect your employees.
Outdoor Safety Glasses
Working outdoors for long periods of time can expose you to harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. The best way to keep your eyes protected during this time is to use Dark Lens Safety Glasses. Not only do they block out the harmful rays, but they also provide anti-glare capabilities and make it easier to perform your job duties.
Goggles for Dangerous Chemicals
Safety goggles that protect users who are exposed to dangerous chemicals typically include splash guards and covered vents to ensure not lethal contact is made with the chemicals being handled. In the case that the liquid becomes airborne or splashes up to the eyes it cannot enter the protected area around the eyes.
Safety Glasses for Visitors
Being prepared to protect anyone who walks through your worksite is essential. While laborers will be accustomed to using necessary protections each day, there may be cases when visitors to your facility will walk through dangerous areas and should use protective eyewear. Special visitor specs are common because they can fit different faces shapes and head sizes and fit over prescription eyewear if needed.
