What eye protection lenses are you relying for protection?
More than 700,000 U.S. workers injure their eyes on the job every year! Come on. That number is ridiculous, especially when there’s eye protection out there for virtually every task. If you aren’t sure what kind of lens you need to provide, all you gotta do is ask Bacon.
Here are some tips on choosing the right eye protection at work.
Safety glasses and goggles have come a long way. They don’t just protect the eyes from flying particles or impact; they also help reduce eye fatigue. Sometimes all you need is a clear lens, but when there multiple light sources, high light intensity or other hazards then you need a specific lens.
If it’s important to you that workers can see what they are doing, buy the right lenses for the job. If productivity and safety isn’t a big deal, keep doing what you’re doing.
