The last thing you want on the workplace is an eye injury caused by a lack of compliance - especially when these injuries are completely avoidable. In reality, over 90% of eye injuries can be avoided by simply wearing protective goggles.
Finding and selecting the correct protection can be difficult, and most conventional safety gogglesare unquestionably unpleasant, restricting, fogging up quickly, and even unsightly. Furthermore, they're frequently considered as a "one-size-fits-all" solution, rather than taking into account various facial shapes, applications, work environments, and other factors.
These characteristics make it difficult for safety managers to ensure that personnel are wearing their safety glasses when they are obliged to do so, as well as to provide them with the correct pair for the job. It is important that you balance comfort, performance, fit and style when considering a purchase for safety eyewear. Have a look at waht we advise.
Safety glasses should be comfortable to wear, and have no pressure points on the nose bridge, sides of the head, or behind the ears. For increased comfort, look for frames with a mix of hard and soft components that may be worn all day.
Usually, one size does not fit all, thus it's critical to select safety eyewear that meets all of the following criteria:
- Eyewear fits without gaps on your head.
- Fits comfortably on your head with no pressure points.
- When moving the head up and down and side to side, it stays in position.
- Provides unrestricted peripheral vision.
The importance of performance aspects cannot be overstated. Look for a wide-angle, wraparound lens design with smooth optical quality in the lenses, as this will assist to decrease blind spots, eye fatigue, and headaches.
The major lens characteristics you'll want are permanent anti-fog and scratch-resistant coatings, because not only do you need the coatings to work, but you also need to know that they'll keep working no matter how many times they're washed.
It's human nature to want to look and feel nice in your safety goggles. As a result, make sure the glasses you purchase make you feel not only safe, but also confident. Wearability relies heavily on style confidence, which leads to compliance.
